What type of runners is the 5k2PB Running Academy for?

The 5k2PB Running Academy caters for all runners, that said if you are Mo Farah then we probably aren't for you. Our greatest success is with people who class themselves as slow, average or recreational runners, so if you describe yourself as one of these and you want to get faster, fitter or generally improve our running, coming and join us now. We are also not designed for complete beginners, there is loads of great free couch to 5k programmes out there that we'd recommend you follow first, once you can run 5k then come and join us, we'd love to help you take your running to the next level.

I’m not really a runner, is this for me?

Yes - we have a very strict definition of "a runner". We class a runner as anyone who can run 2 metres. Yes that is right 2 metres, not 2 kilometres or 2 miles but 2 metres. We class everyone as runners, not matter how fast or slow you are, you are a runner. That said we do want to take your running to the next level so do ask that you can run 5k before you join up!

How does the pricing work?

There are 3 options when you join. You can join for: 1 week 4 weeks 1 year. Each of these options are a subscription model so they will renew automatically (you'll then get a new personalised plan for that period). There is however no contract and you can cancel at anytime.

Is the 5k2PB Running Academy better than downloading a free programme?

100% yes - the 5k2PB Running Academy is SO much more that the programmes you can download for free. Firstly the plan we provide for you is personlised based on your current status and your goals. They are also refreshed each time your membership renews (1 week, 4 weeks or 1 year depending on how you wish to pay). Our approach is far more holisitc than any free programme, it is hugely comprehensive and covers: Technique ⭐️ Cardio ⭐️ Strength ⭐️ Mindset. ⭐️ Nutrition ⭐️ Physique (including weight loss for runners) ⭐️ Flexibility

I’m already a member of a running club, can I still join?

Of course you can, some of my runners are too afriad to tell their running club they've been working with me. They've even been embarrassed by their awesome results, one of them even knocked 7 minutes off their club run! So if you want to catch somebody that is always ahead of you - come and join us!

How do I cope with the elation of personal best after personal best?

Haha I love hearing from my members when they've smashed a PB and then wait in anticipation to their next run to see if they've beaten it again! Enjoy the elation!

I have another question that isn’t listed here?

No problem at all. Feel free to contact me via email on info@5k2pb.com or on my instagram or facebook page - you can find me by searching 5k2PB on either of them!

Is it just for 5k?

No, your personalised plan can be geared for any distances. All the videos are not distance specific so can be used whatever your goal. That’s said if you don’t have a race planned, we love working with runners to improve their 5k, it’s a perfect distance as sets the foundations for everything else. We love getting runners improve their 5k time and then get them to build (or re-build) endurance with a better technique, better fitness, improved mindset, stronger body, improved knowledge around nutrition and a physique more suited to running!
