BEGINNING RUNNER'S 10-WEEK TRAINING PLAN

The following running schedule was created by Budd Coates, Health Promotions Manager at Rodale Press, who instructs a corporate beginning running program. Coates has taken non-runners and, in 10 weeks, helped them reach their goal of running the 3.5-mile Chemical Bank Corporate Challenge.

Before you start with this schedule, get your legs ready with eight days of walking; walk for 20 minutes a day for the first four days, then increase to 30 minutes a day for four more days. Now you're ready to begin with week 1.

Each week of the program, do your run/walk workouts on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and take Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday off.

Week 1

Run 2 minutes, walk 4 minutes. Repeat 5 times.

 

Week 6

Run 9 minutes, walk 2 minutes. Repeat twice, then run 8 minutes.

 

Week 2

Run 3 minutes, walk 3 minutes. Repeat 5 times.

 

Week 7

Run 9 minutes, walk 1 minute. Repeat 3 times.

Week 3

Run 5 minutes; walk 2.5 minutes. Repeat 4 times.

 

Week 8

Run 13 minutes, walk 2 minutes. Repeat 2 times.

Week 4

Run 7 minutes, walk 3 minutes. Repeat 3 times.

 

Week 9

Run 14 minutes, walk 1 minute. Repeat 2 times.

 

Week 5

Run 8 minutes, walk 2 minutes. Repeat 3 times.

 

Week 10

Run 30 minutes.

 Note: After completing week 9, if you feel tired, repeat this week of training before moving on to week 10.
