“Road To Your 5k” Peloton Training Program: Classes Schedule & More

Peloton’s “Path to Your 5K” training plan guides you through five weeks of preparation for a 5K race. If you’re new to running or just getting started, you might find it helpful to begin with the “You Can Run” program.

Program Overview

Program Description

Here is the Peloton’s official description of “Road to Your 5K”: “Embark on a 6-week journey tailored for newbie racers or folks returning to the racing scene. This program will help you build up your speed, strength, and stamina through a mix of interval training, longer runs, focused strength workouts, and a 2-week taper period.”

Program Badges

Of course, Peloton always adds a fun touch with badges. When you finish 14 classes, you’ll earn a shiny Bronze badge. Go for 20 classes, and you’ll snag the Silver badge. And if you conquer 26 out of the 28 classes, you’ll proudly sport the Gold badge.
