Do you need a new challenge? A 5k is fun, sociable and achievable! This comprehensive training programme will give you all of the information you need to get you running your first 5K race in just 5 weeks. We have organised it based on three ability levels – beginner, for someone who’s never run before; intermediate, for someone who is moderately active; and advanced, for someone who considers themselves fairly active and is looking to improve his or her fitness and running time. You will learn the importance of a healthy, active life, as well as how fitness, nutrition and lifestyle work hand-in-hand to help you achieve your goals. Whether you’re new to running or already do cardio a few times a week, this plan will take you from 0 to 5K in style successfully.

The 5 Weeks to 5k training plan can be used in conjunction with the 24FIt Workout. Phase 1 of the programme focuses on stability where the body is hardened against injury. This involves the use of light weights and other exercises to strengthen all the little “helper muscles” around the joints, which, along with a lot of stretching insures that each joint is functioning properly. This phase prepares the body for the more strenuous work to come later in the training cycle. What Robert Forster refers to as infrstraucture building for the human body, toughening the joints, creating stability at every joint. what they call “Kevlar Training” so it makes the athletes “bullet proof”, so they dont breakdown on the track. Robert has used the same programmes with beginners and elite Olympic athletes.
