What We Like About the Ironbridge 10k Training Schedule

  • This program comes as a printable PDF file which has a range of training 10k schedules to choose from - beginner, intermediate and advanced.
  • I like the options to reduce the amount of days you run to 3, which I feel is the most manageable and practical amount to allow for other life style factors such as work, family, injuries etc getting in the way.
  • The advice to train the body in different ways including resistance or gym training is very good and will make a big difference to performance.
  • There are some very good notes before the training programs which some of the other programs don't mention.

What We Like About the Ironbridge 10k Training Schedule

  • All the running sessions whilst a little basic are explained clearly, but no real level of effort is described so the runner doesn't really know at what point they should be training.
  • Using an RPE (rate of perceived) scale is a far more practical system. To use this scale you simply apply the amount of effort you are putting in to a number between 1 and 10. So for example 1 is very easy, 5 feels average and 10 is the hardest you could possibly work. If the program then states at a given point you should be working at an RPE 6, then you know you should be pushing yourself a little harder than average
