Our sub 80 minute 10 mile race training plan is built to help athletes work smarter, not harder. The program caps out at 64 miles. The schedule is focused on training the athlete to sustain 7:59 mile or 4:58 kilometer pace for 10 miles or 16 kilometers. Our 10 miler training plan options are built focusing on training at or far below goal 10-mile race pace.
One of the biggest mistakes runners make is not training adequately at their anaerobic threshold. Also, not training for a long enough period of time on their feet. The problem arises from insufficient training time at paces below sub 80-minute 10-mile pace. This 10 mile run training plan is specifically built to ensure the athlete knows what to do finally dip below that 80-minute 10-miler barrier.
Our goal with this training plan is to ensure race pace feels more in control and less demanding on the human body. Yes, it will hurt in the latter stages of your 10-mile race. There is no doubt about that. The goal is to clear lactic acid faster than it is building up when you race. Some of the training includes running at paces closer to sub 7-minute mile pace. Also, high emphasis on recovery between hard road and/or track workouts.
10 Mile Training Plan 12 Weeks
We focus on gradually increasing mileage and intensity with equal emphasis on the rest period to ensure”supercompensation”takes place. Remember, all of the benefits of your hard training comes within the recovery period of your training. Your body is 2 to 3 times weaker immediately following a hard workout. So, what you do the hours after your track or road workout is what counts most.
Furthermore, training for a 80 minute 10-mile race takes a combination of hard anaerobic work. In addition, equal attention on relaxed aerobic running. We all know how to work hard but hard work doesn't always guarantee results. Smart work does.
So, you need to follow what the best middle to long distance runners do and simply emulate their work habits. Why do you think the Kenyans and other top runners in your local area make it look so easy? It isn't necessarily that they are more talented than you. They have trained sufficiently at paces that are far below their goal 10-mile race pace. Also, they have done this over a long period of time.

The 10 miler training program concludes with a 10-day taper. The reason is to help offset the athlete from feeling fatigued and lethargic.
