My estimate 5k time was sub21 when I started this plan (PB was 19:30). I strictly followed all the workouts except for few days which I cannot finished the workout due to fatigue from cycling. After 6weeks, i was so confident to break sub40. Finally, I ran sub40 10k with timing 39:30. Thanks Ben for this awesome plan. Good things about this plan are:
1. Detail pace for each session.
3. Suitable for recreational runner that dont have much time.
Great plan that challenged me and got me working in the right way. I am 47 and still learning about distance running. Ran 39.02 today in the Eastleigh 10k and had more to give. 38 minutes and below here we come! Thank you Ben and team an absolute bargin and I will keep getting it done.
I decided I needed a challenge to keep me focused in 'lockdown 3' so signed up to the L4 10k plan with the aim of running a sub 40 mins 10k for the first time. As a benchmark I ran a 19:59 5k the week before starting the plan. I followed every session on the L4 plan around work, kids and life's other distractions missing only the cross training sessions. I hit the weekly mileage and knew around week 6 that my goal of breaking 40 mins was achievable. I have just got home from running a 38.21 10k including a 5k PB within that run of 18:49 :) This run was away ahead of expectations are I am so pleased! Big thank you to Ben for inspiring me on YouTube and other platforms!
Wow, just ran my (virtual) race yesterday and smashed my PB with almost 2 minutes from 38:55 to 37:10. I'm absolutely over the moon. I had so much fun with the plan. I loved the amount of interval sessions. They make you so much faster and stronger to achieve your goal. I fully recommend this plan to anyone who wants to sharpen their PB and I will definitely use other plans in the future. Thanks Ben!
I purchased the level 4 10k plan as I’m a sub 35 runner currently. The main reason for buying this is to give me something to focus on while we have no races due to the current situation. The thing I like most about the plans is that it comes with a pacing chart which is really helpful and saves time when it comes to working out what paces I need to running during different sessions. I would recommend buying other plans in the future too!
This is my 2nd plan (HM LV4) I've purchased from Ben. This also is created with great detailed. Guide pace ranges for each target time. I'm hitting faster times that I hadn't previously in training for around same HR effort. I'd recommended this or any of Ben's plans.
I've been using the plan for 3 weeks now and have run a new 5k PB and well on track to run a new 10k PB. The plan has detailed pacing targets for each of your runs which ensures you have enough rest and recovery between your more intense sessions.
I would highly recommend the plan!
Improved my 10k pb with over 2 minutes. My new pb is 37:22. Great training plan.
Just ran a 37:45 10k from a 40:15 previous best. I’m chuffed to bits. Great plan, I’ve a full time job and 4 kids and able to fit the training in around it all, thanks 👍
Just finished the plan this weekend and with no races anywhere due to covid 19 and in drizzle and windy conditions. I ran my 2nd fastest 10km ever. Just 20 seconds off my pb. If I can do that on my own I can't wait to try it in a race when they are back on here. You will definitely improve with Ben's plan
