    A great starting marathon plan

    Used this plan to build up to my first marathon after a knee injury last year. I did my DIY marathon at the end of lockdown, finished strong in 4h12. Now going to use the L2 to aim for that sub-4 next - thanks Ben! Great plan, would recommend for any first time marathoners.

    Finished strong my first marathon

    Trained for my first marathon (Athens Marathon the Authentic) with this plan. I am very satisfied, i finished strong in 4h 42m. I modified the plan a bit to include more Hill Repeats as the course is hilly. Looking forward to trying L2. Cheers Ben!

    YEs!

    Finally got the sub 5:00 I have been trying to achieve for years. Learnt so much from this plan.. there's way more than just the actual training. Absolute bargain for what you get. Many thanks Ben!

    Getting it done!

    Great hat! Feels amazing, keeps the sweat out of my eyes, and looks fantastic!

    #Iamsold#gettingitdone

    Awesome running hat! Cool yet purist design, light, quality, great all-round.

    Greenwich Green Cap

    love the cap, the first 5 weeks or so were only Hats Forward weather and was só happy with the cap, absolutely brilliant. There was no wicking of water behind the band even in a torrential downpour. Very happy, very comfortable to wear even with a big head and lots of hair. I would definitely recommend it
    Had to go for green for a wee reminder of the Emerald Isle

    First in my suitcase

    Love it, better than I expected Recently took it to a top of a Scottish mountain and it done it's job, Comfy, warm, kept the Mosquito off, really good fit.And I got it done.

    The BEST top I have run in

    I think the simplest thing I can say is that this is the first top I have ever run in where I NEVER had to adjust it while i was racing, I completely forgot I had it on! It wasn’t until the race finished that I realised how unaware of it I was, and how comfortable I had been all the way through the race!
    Also, I set a 5min PB in the 10k race, so maybe that was also from the top!!
