Thanks for the question and thanks for the feedback. I am still trying to pick my way through what type of program (if any) would be best for me. All of these posts helped.

good luck. I too would like to do the one hour runner program but needed a different program than what they offered. I liked the Bridge to 10 and Freeway to 8K (or vice versa) and when you look at it, will get you to running an hour at the end. But there are walk breaks in there.

from what I have read, this is the Jeff Galloway program and a lot of people recommend it for endurance and injury prevention.

Hi All,
I did C25K using the Robert Ullrey podcast and am completed my first 5K in October. Now I'm training for a 10K. Thanks for the links to the Spark your way to a 10K!
Does anyone know of a podcast that is helpful for 10 K's? Seems like I looked for one w/Ullrey and there wasn't one.......

That's what I'm debating now, whether to follow a plan based on time or distance. I followed the c25k plan based on time, so I'm kinda leaning towards that way.

I used the OHR plan and it worked. It also helped me greatly with pace for distance running. I was able to slow down and enjoy the run, knowing that my goal was to accomplish time, not distance.

Good luck!!!

If you're looking for training plans for a 10k that start with 2-3 mile runs, you can check out halhigdon.com. There are good ones on there. Also, I used the Spark your way to a 10k one on here. . . I don't the link to it but I can find it and send it to you. Best of luck!

I know there is a sticky on this programme, but its a bit dead!

Anyway. I can now run 5k fairly comfortably & I'm looking to get up to 10k. I've looked at the Bridge to 10k plan & the One Hour Runner plan and decided that I don't want to go back to walking intervals.

Has anyone followed this OHR plan? Did you find it beneficial? Or do you have any other 10k ideas?

Thanks.
