Morning all,
I wonder could I bother all you knowledgeable people for a little bit of advise.
I am looking for an eight week 10k plan. I have googled it and have got a lot of different options so I thought you might be able to point me in the right direction.

I have never run an organised 10k before and have not done any running in the last 6 months, out from the odd 20mins on a treadmill. Having said that I am pretty fit. I play squash twice a week do 2 full on kettle bell classes a week and 1 to 2 sessions on a bike or cross trainer.

Up to the end of last summer I would have been running 2-3 times a week and would regularly have done 10k distances in about 50mins to an hour.

I am 36 by the way and time wise would be aiming for under 45mins.

as I said I would be grateful if you could point me towards a good 8 week programme or give me any tips or advise.

Thanks

8 week training program in attached link, gives 3 plans, one for 40 mins, one for 50 etc. so you could adjust it to get your 45 min time. Can't comment as to how good it is though, have only recently started on it myself
