The Fit RV’s 5k Training Plan – WEEK 2


And here we are already at Week 2 of your 5k training plan! Hopefully all went well with Week 1, and you got through those first 4 workouts without any difficulty. Glad to see you’re still with me.

Those Thanksgiving 5ks are going to be here before we know it! Sticking to this plan will ease you into running/powerwalking shape for your 5k event. We’re doing this gradually to allow your body time to adapt, so be patient! There’s a whole lot more walking in our plans than there is jogging/powerwalking in these beginning weeks. That’s okay. Transformation is a process. We’ll get you there!

In Week 2, you’re going to have 4 workouts again, but the first is mostly active recovery. You’ll only run/powerwalk 90 seconds in your first workout of this week. Enjoy it while it lasts… The last 3 workouts in Week 2 get more involved, with lots of intervals, but none longer than 90 seconds.
