Galloway Getting Started 5K

Plan Length: 12 Weeks

With Jeff Galloway's Run/Walk/Run method, virtually anyone can finish a 5K. Note that this plan will never ask you to run without walk breaks. Jeff Galloway's method has been proven to help runners go faster, recover sooner, and avoid injury, always while taking walk breaks. This easy to follow plan requires only two short weekday runs. Weekend runs gradually build in duration from 15 minutes to 50 minutes.

Sample Week Of Training

Cross Training - Day Off or Walk

To prepare for your goal race, you don't have to exercise today, but for overall health, it's a good idea to do some sort of cross training a couple of times per week. Walking is always a good option.

Others include swimming, spin classes (limit out of the saddle riding), elliptical, or water running.

Planned: 45:00

Run - Easy Run

Run/Walk/Run at an easy training pace that avoids "huffing and puffing." Use your favorite run/walk ratio, adjusting the run time as needed, but keeping the walk time to 30 seconds. Remember, though, the idea for this phase of training is just to get through the time scheduled for the day. Even if you end up walking the entire time, it still counts!
