How To Train for 5k PB with Jeff Gaudette

by | Podcasts On Performance

Struggling to get that 5K PB? Tired of the same parkrun time every week? Then this episode with Runners Connect founder & head coach Jeff Gaudette is for you!

The UK now has some 623 parkruns happening every Saturday across the country. Although for some runners, completion time is not important but for others parkrun represents a weekly challenge to get a new 5k PB.

Runners Connect founder & head coach Jeff Gaudette has competed all over the world and recorded Olympic Trials qualifying times in the marathon and 10,000 meters. He began coaching in 2005 while a member of the Hansons-Brooks professional team.

With a 13:59 PB over 5k and 2:22 at marathon, he founded ‘RunnersConnect’ in 2011 with the goal of helping runners find real, research-based answers to questions about their training and avoiding the latest fads.

In this episode, Jeff tells us about the mistakes runners often make when training for 5k, and discuss strategies that can help you avoid injury along the way.

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?

Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:


    Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
    After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
