Base Training - Beginner

Coached by Matt Fitzgerald

4Workouts per week

Type: Run
Where: Outdoor
Equipment: None
Difficulty: Easy
Workout Durations: 33-47 Minutes

This 3-Week, 12-Workout training plan was designed for low-mileage runners who are in the early weeks of preparing for a 5K or 10K event. The program is based on the 80/20 Rule, as described in coach Matt Fitzgerald’s book 80/20 Running.

Each week you will do approximately 80 percent of your total running at low intensity (Zones 1 and 2) and 20 percent at moderate (Zone 3) to high intensity (Zones 4 and 5).

Cutting-edge research shows that runners of all ability and experience levels improve the most when they train in this “mostly slow” fashion.

IMPORTANT: You should be comfortable running 4 times per week for up to 40 minutes or more before you start the plan.

Workout is good; coach uninspiring

by jayzee - January 5, 2015

I downloaded this freebie and at the start of Workout 1 Matt says he will give tips on form and running by feel if you don't have a workout monitor (which I can't afford at this time). There are no form tips or tips on running by feel (Coach Jenny Hadfield incorporates many of both of these in her workouts). Matt doesn't seem to have much personality in this ... at least in the first workout, which is all I've done so far. I liked running the 8 fast intervals though.
