The plan, which is part of their Celebrate You campaign, will help us get ready both physically and mentally for 10K in 10 weeks

If you’re a listener of our podcast or follow us on Instagram, you might already know that we’re taking on the virtual Vitality 10,000 – walking, jogging or running a 10K anytime in half term week (that’s 29 May to 6 June).

They’re encouraging us all to run for our head as well as our heart as part of their #CelebrateYou campaign, and they’ve just released their Run Happy and Healthy training plan to help us do just that.

Not only will the plan get us physically ready for 10K in 10 weeks, but it also includes mental health elements too. Each week the plan suggests simple ways to #CelebrateYou – tips on how to feel more motivated, beat boredom and celebrate successes big and small. There are even podcast recommendations to enjoy as you train, and Q&As with inspirational runners. “We want everyone to feel not just healthier, but happier in the run-up to the event”, say the Vitality London 10,000 team.


The plan is ideal for those who are new to running or looking to take on their first 10K event, but even if you’re a seasoned racer, the mental health aspect is a brilliant addition to your training.

They’ve also shared Training Tips on their website covering everything from nutrition to tips for a stress-free race day – you can find them here.

If you’d like to join Team WR and sign up to the event, click here for more info and to get your spot. It’s £19 to enter, and all finishers get the official medal and technical t-shirt.
