- Run 3 times a week, 1-3 miles each run
- Only increase mileage (either add a day of running or tack on a mile or two to one of the runs) once you’re completely comfortable with the mileage
- Once at baseline (mileage you are completely comfortable with), follow 10% rule until you reach peak mileage (or “danger zone”)
- Only increase 5-10% once in that “danger” zone
- Include a cut-back week (should have 10-20% less mileage than previous high-mileage week) so your body can rest and recover
RUNNERS WHO JUMP BACK IN AFTER A BREAK:
- No need to start from scratch. You can work up to baseline mileage without following 10% rule– increase 15-20% each week since you’re not completely new.
