    First half marathon done!

    I completed my first half marathon in the beautiful Western Cape South Africa today in 2:10. At age 68 I’m really cuffed. Bens training plan was such a help getting me race ready and fit. Thanks so much

    2:30 target of a solo/introvert runner

    I followed Ben's beginner plan to get a sub2:30 since I tried to get back in shape after the pandemic. All is going well, but the taper week made my knee have clicking sounds and decided to skip some of my workouts. If I haven't experienced this on my knee, I can confidently say that I will get may target time below 2:20. I would have done it better but decided not to push myself today because of my knee. But today, in my Garmin watch it's 2:26 in the race result it's 2:30. Hoping to recover soon. Thank you Ben for the guidance. I am a solo runner and introvert, and this helped me a lot.

    PS. If you have some kind of exercises to improve my knee clicking sounds, please do share it on your YT channel. Thank you!

    Beginners half marathon training plan

    Even though I've ran marathons and ultra marathons. I'm recovering from cancer so i though I'd start from the beginning again. This is a fantastic plan and i can feel the benefits.

    Excellent Starter!

    Really good starter programme, good for getting me back into it after a 2 year hiatus! Will definitely be getting more plans! Thanks

    Great Plan

    I’m finding this plan works as a great template and gives me space to do what’s best for me. Thank Ben!

    Enjoying the plan

    This is the first training plan I've ever followed despite many years of racing. I'm a slower older female runner aged 56, and decided to download the free beginner plan as I usually complete my half marathons in around 2:25. This plan is manageable around full time work and family commitments. It also allows adequate recovery time for someone of my age. I'm really enjoying the variety in pace and run types - prior to this I just plodded along. The plan is very easy to follow and is very achievable. I would thoroughly recommend giving it a try if you're thinking of following a plan. Fingers crossed I might be able to knock some time off my 2:19 PB. Thanks Ben.

    2 hour half marathon

    This plan looks great! I appreciate the strength training days.

    First Half Marathon done!

    After years of the odd 10k decided at 59 to give the Half Marathon a go and with your tips and following your awesome training plan finished it in 1 hour 52 minutes. Onwards to the next one. Keep up the great work😀🏃‍♂️

    spot on

    Not ran the distance since my 1st 4 half's ran in 2019. Manchester 1 40 to Sheffield 1 45 (5 mile climb from start) running milage well down last 12 months after knee issues turns out it's degenerative wear tear in right medial meniscus after MRI in June. Plan clear n easy but will probably purchase next level up. Got 11 weeks to worksop half I deferred from last year
