The RunDreamAchieve sub 40 minute 5 mile training plan is built to help athletes work smarter, not harder. The program caps out at 53 miles and is highly focused on training the athlete to sustain 7:59 mile pace for 5 miles. Your 5 mile running plan is focused on training at, near or far below goal 5 mile race pace. One of the biggest mistakes runners make is not training adequately at their anaerobic threshold long enough. In addition, insufficient training time at paces closer to their 3K-5K race pace to ensure they can run under 40 minute 5-mile pace.
Train Smarter NOT Harder and Get a New PR
Our goal with this training plan is to ensure race pace feels more sustainable and less taxing on the human body. Yes, it will hurt in the latter stages of your 5 mile race. There is no doubt about that. That being said, this will 5 mile run training program will set you up for success. Some of the training includes running at paces closer to sub 6 minute mile pace and high emphasis on recovery between hard road and/or track workouts. This 5 mile race training plan is specifically built to ensure the athlete knows what to do finally dip below that 40 minute 5 mile barrier.
We focus on gradual increases in mileage and intensity with equal emphasis on the rest period to ensure supercompensation takes place. Remember, all of the benefits of your hard work comes within the rest period of your training. So, training for 5-mile run race efforts takes a combination of hard anaerobic work with equal attention on relaxed aerobic running. Hard working athletes don't always get the results. So, you need to follow what the best runners do and simply duplicate 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 simply have trained at paces that far exceed their 5 mile race pace and they have done this over a long period of time.

What you lack in talent can be made up for good old-fashioned, hard work and that is often times enough if you train properly. I am certain that this 40 minute 5 mile run training plan will help you finally break through the sub 40 minute barrier. The program is designed to gradually introduce the athlete into specific training that will yield the athlete the fitness needed to run a 5 miler under 40 minutes. We also have 80 Minute 10 mile race plan as well if interested.
The training plan concludes with a 10-day taper to help offset the athlete from feeling fatigued and lethargic in the latter stages of the taper. Often times, athletes will start dropping their intensity and mileage 21 days out and feel more tired than energized. I personally build all of RunDreamAchieve training plans based on the training philosophies I have been taught by some of the worlds' top endurance coaches that trained me.
