Yes, you can run a 6.2-miler in four weeks with just three workouts a week with this training plan. You’ll earn serious bragging rights and burn some 650 calories. The guys from Self.com mapped out a simple calendar that’ll help you get there.
Observe all the white space on this training plan? Forgive us if we’ve given you too many days off. But running coach Mario Fraioli, author of The Official Rock ‘n’ Roll Guide to Marathon & Half- Marathon Training, says you can do three workouts a week and be 10K-ready in a month. On a Monday, he may have you run and cross train; Wednesday, he might say sprint and lift; Saturday, jog only—each “on” day you’ll never spend much more than an hour in sneaks. We know what you’re thinking: I got this. Yep, you do.
