10K RACE

(2 customer reviews)

BEST FOR: For those who have completed a 10k before
PREREQS: Able to complete a six-mile run and have run at least one 10K before; completed longer races like a half marathon or marathon preferred. An injury-free body is key: If you’ve got lingering issues that are on their way out the door, be sure to keep up the physical therapy and/or foam rolling to continue to encourage their exit.
NUMBER OF WEEKS: 12

This aggressive, 12-week plan will take you to a rip-roarin’ fast 10K (6.2 miles). Along the way, you’ll build your cardiovascular base with long runs; hit some hills to increase your leg strength; and have multiple doses of tempo runs, 800’s, and other speed-builders so you can mentally and physically get ready to let it rip on race day.

As your running improves, your mental toughness will also soar to new heights as you knock off challenging—but doable—workouts. You’ll also run a practice 5K in the middle of the plan to check your pace and hop in a race. (Hey, that rhymes!)

BIGGEST WEEK OF TRAINING: 21-26 miles

LONGEST LONG RUN DISTANCES: three 9 milers; one 10 miler

CROSS TRAINING + STRENGTH TRAINING INCLUDED? Most weeks include two days of cross training. There are strength circuits three times weekly, as well as a prehab routine Coach Amanda designed. Most of the circuits require just your body weight; a few require exercise bands.

FIRST AND PEAK WEEKS: (workouts explained fully in the program)

All your workouts are accessible via a Training Peaks Account. This free training tool will help you chart the nearly daily growth of your endurance base. It also sends you a daily email with your workouts for today and tomorrow so you can plan accordingly.

Coaches Jess + Amy are here to help you over speed bumps and answer your questions—and we promise, they’ll never blow a whistle in your face. Not only have they designed every facet of your program from your first step through your finish line, there’s also a weekly newsletter filled with advice and tips that corresponds to your training program.

What’s more, your coaches also posts a weekly Ask the Coach column on the private Facebook page, where you can comment with anything that’s on your mind. (If you’re not a Facebooker, you can email us with your question.) Finally, we host regular calls to talk through pacing, injuries, and plenty of other helpful + entertaining topics.

In addition to Train Like a Mother Club, you’ll also be invited to join a private 10K Program club on Strava, where you can track your miles, and a private 10k, 10 mile, + 13.1 mile Program Facebook page, where you’ll quickly find an army of (funny, empathetic, inspiring) #motherrunner teammates.* You’ll share training tips, stories of good runs and bad, cheer each other on, and push each other out the door. Momentum comes from teamwork, and these programs roll on some serious #motherrunner momentum.

*Please note that your membership in both our Strava and Facebook groups and access to the training program coaches are limited to the duration of your training plan, plus a few weeks for you to bask in the glow of your race and work with the coaches to help plan your next athletic goal and corresponding training plan. Your access to the Facebook group begins when your training plan does. You are welcome to request entry up to one month before your starting date.

As part of your registration, you will receive a package stocked with training essentials, including a
tube of  Nuun Sport; two GU Energy items (an Energy Gel and GU Chews); a pair of blister-banishing Wrightsock running socks; a 2-oz. bottle of Sweat X Odor Eliminator spray; a Kate’s Real Food bar; and an AMR sticker for your water bottle or laptop. $32 worth of swag!

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

To thrive on the Train Like a Mother 10K Race plan, you should be able to complete a six-mile run and have run at least one 10K before. Having completed longer races like a half marathon or marathon will also come in handy. An injury-free body is key: If you’ve got lingering issues that are on their way out the door, be sure to keep up the physical therapy and/or foam rolling to continue to encourage their exit.

No. The fee is for the comprehensive, 12-week training program, unlimited support, miles of resources, exclusive podcasts, and swag package, which will help you achieve a strong 10K. At the end of the training cycle, you will participate in the organized 10K of your choice; you can also choose to run a 10K on your own, if that works better for you.

Yep—and we’ve heard again and again it’s worth it. Staying committed and motivated during the days, weeks, and, yes, months of training can be ridiculously hard. If you can do that—and these programs are all about accountability and inspiration—race day becomes a celebratory victory lap, not a slog full of self-doubt.

Two of the strength routines include resistance bands, so if you’d like to purchase those, that would be a good investment. (Hello, hip stability!)

Within a few weeks of registration, every participant in a Train Like a Mother program receives a stocked swag package with some of our favorite training essentials. Domestic shipping is now FREE for all merchandise and training swag packages.

International shipping outside of Canada is not currently available but we invite you to participate in any of our online programs!Just email us at tlamclub@anothermotherrunner.com and we will help you bypass the shipping at checkout.

We definitely want this to work into your life and your running lifestyle. You can email us within 2 weeks of starting the program and we will set you up with another plan or a partial credit for an upcoming challenge. We will not be able to issue a straight-up refund.

With a smart training plan, doable strength training, and advice on foam rolling and other self-care, we’re going to do our best to keep you injury-free. That said, if you have an injury or illness that totally slays your training, let us know within two weeks. We’ll work with you to get you a partial credit for an upcoming program.

  1. Sandy (verified owner)

    Great program for racing a 10K. Good balance of strength, running, and workouts to improve speed. Not overwhelming.

  2. Phyllis (verified owner)

    This plan was the perfect mix of tempo runs, hill sprints, strides and long runs. Strength training, cross training and rest days were also added to the schedule to give you the perfect mix of training. You also have the online support of the TLAM Facebook group and coaches. I finished my race strong and confident!
