Your focus for the first few weeks of your training will be Conditioning & Endurance.

This is where we get a baseline of full body conditioning built so your body can get used to running longer. This is also where do the very start of your run training!

The workouts this week will typically be on the longer side. If you find they take longer than the time you have available, set a time cap for yourself and go as far as you can before hitting that cap. As for the run training, you'll only be doing that for 20 minutes at a time this week, so be sure to allow at least that much time. No cutting the run training short!

Below you will find five days of workouts/run training/ Day 1, 3 & 5 are workouts. Day 2 & 4 are run training. Schedule them however you think would work best for your week. If possible, try to split up your rest days so you aren't doing five days of training and two rest days.

Try to get through this workout with minimal rest. Do rest where you need to but keep it as short as possible. We're working on building your strength and endurance.
