What distance do I go each day?


Recommended Posts



Just about to start this programme and I apologise if this has been asked before, I did have a quick look but couldn't spot it.  Obviously with a varying amount of walking and running you actually cover a different distance during your session each day.  I want to do this outside and, preferably, as a circuit but to do that you need to know how far you are actually going to cover.


For example week one might actually be about 1.5k whereas week three is 3k and so on.  Appreciate people have different strides but averaging out a few should give a reasonable figure to work with.  Has anyone done this?  If not if you could post me your average distances for each of the eight weeks then I'll work out an average.


Many thanks and, hey, wish me luck!

Hi Stu,

Don't worry about the distance; run during time periods when you are supposed to. The pace will come.


I track my pace with a Garmin Forerunner, however, a lot of people use the mapmyrun app.


For my first 5K in February, my target is under 25 minutes. After finishing the 10K app I've been increasing the distances & adding in some intervals.
