The 8 week 5K training plan is perfect for the beginner level athlete. 2 months of solid training with day by day training advice. Seeking to run a new 5K personal best? This is a great training schedule for that goal to become a reality. Easily downloadable and instantly available upon purchase.
Are you planning on running your first 5K? Do you have hesitations about completing it? This 8 week 5K training schedule will help you overcome any doubts or concerns you may have. I created RDA training plans to help beginner-level athletes such as yourself to earn new personal bests and gain confidence.
In addition to that, it brings a lot of self-satisfaction knowing athletes improve by following my advice. The training you will be following is the same fundamentals I follow. These training strategies helped me run 15:19 in college and ultimately 2:19:35 for the marathon as a professional. No training program, regardless of distance, will help unless the athlete is willing to put in the hard work.
Furthermore, you have to have the willingness to stick your neck out, get out the door and put in the miles. The best runners in the world, some of which that I have trained with, follow the same strategies you'll be following. What are these methods?
- Race pace training
- Proper nutrition
- Focusing on getting more sleep and drinking more water
- Focusing on speed rather than just easy mileage
That being said, this is a beginner, 5K training plan so the workouts are manageable. Additionally, I will not be asking you to run 100 miles a week nor will I expect you to go out and run several sub-5 minute miles.

Are you ready to take your 5K training and racing to the next level? I already know following this 8 week 5k training plan will help you do exactly that. The training strategies and workouts you will be following helped me to lower my 5K to 15:19, 10K to 31:09, half-marathon to 1:07:06 and marathon down to 2:19:35. The concepts work and they are universal whether you are a total beginner or seasoned veteran.
Quality over Quantity
Remember, it is not the amount of miles you put in as much as it is about the quality of the miles you are running. This is where many runners get it wrong. They are very focused on how many miles per week they are running. My focus for you is to gain leverage by using this 8 week 5K training schedule. Leverage simply means doing more with less.
What I have found over the years is athletes are spending a very low percentage of their weekly mileage running too slow. Are you preparing to run your first 5K? Have you run a few 5Ks already and need a new strategy? This 8 week 5K training plan is perfect for you.

Make sure to subscribe to the RunDreamAchieve YouTube Channel. I'll be creating new training videos each week catered to total beginners to elite level athletes. The channel was recently launched in January of 2019. I have been creating content here since 2011 but was not making videos. In addition to that, runners that needed my help were missing that aspect of this site so chose to start it.
In addition to that, there are other new resources here. The RunDreamAchieve Academy will have runner courses devoted to beginner to advanced-level athletes. Our first course is the Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro. This course is focused on helping 3 hour marathoners (3:59:59 to 3:00:00) get to 2:59:59 or better. Check back regularly as new courses are added to the academy.
Scroll up and purchase your 8 week 5K training plan. I look forward to hearing how your race went and about your new personal best.
