Garmin Training Plans


Fill Up Your Forerunner With Scheduled Workouts

In this video, I’ll show you the steps to create a 5k Intermediate training plan with Heart Rate using Garmin Connect.

This is a good way to schedule your runs and letting your Forerunner tell you what’s on the calendar. Garmin Training Plans have a number of programs available.

As of January 2013, 5k, half & full marathon programs were available at different level and you have the option to choose Heart Rate Training or not.

The video will show you the step to add a training plan to your calendar and schedule the workouts to your forerunner. We’ll use the Forerunner 610 as the target device.
