Questions about 1:09 Time Goal 10K Training Program - Jeff Galloway

Hello Runners -

 

I have recently downloaded the program identified in my title and I'm a little confused. This will be my second 10K, and the program is listed as beginner. Based on my first 10K time, the time goal of this program is reasonable for me.

 

What I don't understand is the length of some of these workouts. Near the end of the training, there is a 16 MILE run. I'm sorry, but if I could be running 25 km, I likely would be downloading a beginner training program for a 70 minute 10K. I'm just wondering, am I missing something or does anybody else have this concern.

 

Also, in my calendar, on my inputted race day, it indicated that my workout is cross-training. They have also scheduled a run for the day before. This isn't what I'm used to. Is this a mistake or just a different way of training.

 

I'm a little confused so if anyone else out there has purchased this program can give me some feedback or others that know how this training should work, please let me know.

 

Thanks!!
