I have spent quite some time researching and have finally decided on a program that I feels fits me best and will challenge me. I have documented the 10k for Pink running plan from Week 4 – 14. This is the plan I will be sticking by in hopes it gets me to 10k in 10 week! See below for the running plan. I have also researched quite a few and here are some other 10k Running Plans for beginners.

After running with the 10k for Pink APP, I have had to make some adjustments. I’ve discovered that the APP aims to get you to run a 10 minute mile (10 mph or 6.13 km per hour). Since I am still a beginner and I’m sure you may be too, I’ve adjusted the 10k for Pink plan to a bit of an easier pace. A 12 minute mile (12 mph or 7:27 km per hour) is still fairly challenging but definitely doable. Below is the new plan; CLICK HERE to see the comparison of the two. If you plan on using this plan below, let me know, I would recommend making some adjustments in week 5 and 6 as well that I didn’t make in my actual runs so I have kept the Plan as to exactly what I did run.
Okay, so I fell off of this plan but it doesn’t mean it won’t work. I jumped right out of week 11 and into a 10k run. I was getting too antsy. This is because I didn’t follow each week by week. I took too many rest days between runs. I think this is a great app and great program for beginners.
