I have been jogging/running for about 4 weeks now and I will be doing a 10k in April. I can easily manage around 20mins jogging without getting breathless and tired.
Could someone please suggest a suitable schedule to get me up to around a 50min 10k time within 16 weeks. Thankyou :-)

Hello Youre back
Dont mind the darkside, really
10k will be fine
Lots of schedules on this website, but dont worry about time for your first, just enjoy the race

Agree with hippo, there are lots of schedules on this site or do a search using google. Good luck in your first race!

I'm no expert (been running about 4 months) but before my first 10K last November (50:40), I was running about 3-4 times a week at 3 or 4 mile distances at various paces, then built up to a 6 mile (or 10K in new money!) once every 10 days or so. So it seemed to work OK for me, but everyones different!

I agree with Hippo too. I used a RW schedule when I first started and it worked fine. Just enjoy your running and lap up the atmosphere of your first 10k race. They're great fun. Enjoy it and best of luck.
