This is the second plan I follow, from Ben. It won't be the last. I followed this plan for a 2h half marathon. The plan is complete, and the pace chart helped me understand and train in the correct zones from the beginning. I like that the runs are organized along the week, which saved me the trouble to plan my week by myself, yet was flexible enough so I could alter it when necessary. When I was at the end of the plan, I was confident on my training, and was able to do a Time Trial of 1h59h50s. No races for the moment, but that can't stop the run, right? The main thing is the journey, and Ben's plan was a very helpful guide along the way. 5 starts, recommended!
I went from a 1:54 half to finishing in 1:48! This plan is easy to understand and use. I enjoyed the workouts, the build up, everything! Also nice to have the pace chart included. I will definitely be using these plans again. Thank you Ben!
Had it not been for Birmingham Half Marathon cutting the course short by 2 miles I was well on course for a 1:47/1:48 having previously only ever run a 1:55!
Have purchased the L3 for my next training block to up the mileage!
