Remember, quality over quantity is what matters most. There are far too many runners running too aerobically, too often. The result is they have pace sustainment issues because of it.
The athlete who training to run under a sub 55 minute 15K time has to be in great mental and physical shape. You will need to devote 3 to 8 hours or more each week preparing for a race of this length.
The goal with RunDreamAchieve 15K training plans are to help athletes work smarter, rather than harder. Leverage simply means doing more with less. So, we focus on specific training to get the athlete's race pace to feel less aggressive. In addition, to teach the body to use what it has much of, fat storage and conserve what it has much less of, carbohydrate (glycogen) storage.
Also, to train at the anaerobic threshold. You, as the athlete, will be racing your 15K right around or slightly above this intensity. So, it is critical that we prepare you to get as efficient at running at this pace as possible.
12 Week 15KM Training Plan Strategy
One of the biggest mistakes runners make is running too aerobically too often. A 15 kilometer training plan 12 weeks long should focus on about 60% aerobic and 40% anaerobic training. You also want to ensure you are running relaxed on your easy, recovery days.
Remember, the real benefits of the hard work you will be conducting will come from within the rest period. The athlete's body is about 2 to 3 times weaker immediately following a hard, anaerobic workout. So, it is vital to allot sufficient time between each, anaerobic workout to rest.
