fit style, training: 6 week beginner running plan




I designed this 6 week training plan to prepare for the Mother's Day 4 Miler in Reston on May 12th, but realized that I could share it here with some modifications to make it work for any (shorter) race that's 6 weeks away!

I have been running with my mom, Rene (a friend from high school that I just reconnected with, and Jenny. I am hoping that Amanda's foot heals soon so that she can join us on the next 6 week program (it will be an intermediate program also focused on shorter races for summer months!) that we will use for the Firecracker 5k on the 4th of July!

So here it is, a 6 week beginner running plan that will get you into running and keep you injury free!

*Remember to check with your doctor and make sure you're healthy enough to start off with a running plan. Sometimes you have to start with a few (3-6) weeks of walking first. That's okay! Moving is moving!
**My plans are based on plans that I have followed out of books by Jeff Galloway and Hal Higdon. Check them out for more info! :)
