    Marathon training plan

    I went for the intermediate marathon training plan as I'm targeting 03:45'ish. My last marathon with a different plan was was fairly hard to stick to & a bit too advanced for me. I'll be using this plan for Yorkshire marathon 2024 Oct. Looking at the plan it's really simple to understand & read with colour coded runs highlighting easy steady+ harder workouts. The plan can be flexible to fit around my 12hr shifts etc. very happy & will be starting training in July. 5stars out of 5 . Thanks 👍🏼

    42 Minute BP & Ready for the Next Plan!

    3:13:02 with 1,800 ft (550m) elevation gain!!! This was my third ever marathon, after completing my first two several years ago with no training plans at all. I also trained for two other marathons in the past but injured myself in the weeks leading up to the race due to poor pacing in workouts. Using the intermediate training plan and the strength and conditioning throughout for this build made it engaging and kept me focused. I only missed one workout due to sickness and was never feeling even close to any injury or over fatigued even during the peak weeks. The training plan format was ideal for me including the speed workouts and the recovery weeks. I'm planning on using the in-between races plan and then the level 4 advanced plan to hit my BQ in California at CIM. Thank you for everything Ben and Sarah.

    32 Minute PB!

    The plan was really easy to follow and very informative. I really enjoyed the sessions and the S&C workouts. I hit my goal and went from a 3:59 to a 3:27 at Newport Marathon. I'd happily recommend these plans to anyone and will be trying the in-between plans once recovered. A huge thank you Ben and the team at benparkes.com, I couldn't have got that PB without you😊

    Half an hour PB at 56 years young

    What a ride that was. After a mammoth training block. A lot of support and patience from my friends and family, and yet another awesome training plan from Ben, I have finally broken a 13 year standing personal best for the marathon. I am really proud to say that, at a couple of weeks shy of my 57th birthday, I can officially qualify for most of the worlds marathon majors with a time of 3:12:34. 136th out of 716 overall. 9th in age category. Beating my previous time by half an hour and 1 second. I'm knackered but bloody happy with that. 🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃

    Effective, easy to understand - all the way to 3:42

    I found the structure of this plan very easy to understand and follow, and got much better results with this than with my previous free plan. YoY I managed a 27 minute improvement in similar conditions in the Cracovia marathon. My only suggestion to make this better would be for it to be able to interact with the Garmin APIs and automatically import the whole plan instead of having to set up manually ( although I'm sure that is quite a technical challenge)

    Good plan and easy to follow

    Most of my marathons hover around 0350-0355 (did 6 last year). I bought the L3 plan and hope to run 0330-0345 at Boston this April. The plan and workouts are easy to follow and I'm excited to see how it all turns out in a couple months! Thank you Ben and Sarah.

    3:29:15 - 24mins PB

    In October 2022 I ran the Venice Marathon in 3:53. Then, I decided to buy Ben's plan to aim for a sub 3:30 marathon.
    The plan is very well structured, very easy to follow and with lots of different workouts that help to gain confidence running at MP.
    I higly recommend it. Thank you Ben and Sarah!!

    PB again

    Upgrade from L2 to L3 training plan with the goal of sub 3.45

    The training :
    1. 8 weeks of base training before start of 15 weeks marathon training block.
    2. 15 week training plan. Target MP : 5.15 - 5.20.
    3. Average 60km/week, peak week at 84km. Total = 900KM.
    4. LSD ranging from 27km - 37km.
    5. Skipped the recommended strength training (my bad).
    6. Training and race conditions are between 28 - 34 Celsius with 94% and above humidity

    The result:
    3.43.28 - 10 minutes PB from last year

    Thanks again Ben for the awesome training plan that suits by busy schedule

    Great plan

    Used BP intermediate marathon training plan. Was a bit skeptical at the beginning cause there are a lot of very long runs (up to 37k) , I sticked to the plan to the letter and even if it's demanding I finished Berlin marathon strong.
    I was not aiming for a PB as I wanted to enjoy the atmosphere, finished in 3h28m48s and I am super happy with my time and the whole experience.
    Thanks for the plan that I will follow again for sure and thanks for your videos.
