Put aside your same old routine and take on a 10K training challenge.
Whether you're new to the 10K distance or an advanced runner, follow one of these training plans to run farther than ever before or set a PR. Before you begin, download the RockMyRun customized music mix that will help you get through any tough day.
The 10K distance equals 6.2 miles. It's a popular distance for new runners because it's a step up from the 5K (3.1 miles) and tests their fitness. It's far enough to challenge the legs without turning beginners away from long distances.
It's a favorite among advanced runners because it's a good training distance for half- and full-marathon races. It gives the legs a little challenge while perfecting run pace.
You'll find three training plans below, created by Coach Jenny Hadfield: one for newbies, intermediate and advanced runners. Pick the plan that's right for you. And don't forget to download the music mix, created by RockMyRun just for Active readers. Receive one month free RockMyRun Premium Service along with access to the mix.
