A 5K is equal to roughly 3.1 miles, which is areasonable distance for the most seasoned runner or the most timidbeginner.  Training plans start off byhaving participants run for short periods of time, incorporating rest breaksbetween sessions to build up endurance. By week 4, participants have built up the endurance for 7-9 minute jogs,with 5 minute walking breaks built into each training session.  Participants have days off of activity torest and recuperate before moving onto the next level.  Most programs have participants jogging up to20 minutes at a time within 9 weeks, which is plenty of time to cross thefinish line of a 5k.
