Looking to run a 5K? Here is one of our favorite simple, yet effective, training plans for a 5K race. This program works on a 3 or 4 day a week training schedule; however, if these days don't fit into your schedule, simply move them around to make it work for you. If this schedule is too easy, step it up to a 10K plan. Always remember to listen to your body and take it easy when you are sore. Extra rest is always a good thing when training for a race.
