    Another PB following Ben’s plan

    Following Bens plan again and another PB in the bag. I’ve seen others using personal plans paid by coaches who have them slogging like crazy. End up broken but Ben’s plans are what a plan should be. You can feel the improvement as you go through it but you’re not on the cusp of breaking down. The pace range is great addition as some people are like easy pace is one pace. The top gives you a few extra seconds

    Great Marathon Training Plan

    I love the way the plan is set out.
    Easy to see & follow. Can’t wait to really get into it.
    I’m looking forward to seeing some great results.
    Great work guys.

    The plan works

    Wanted a sub 3:10 time so bought this plan.
    Whilst I didn’t do enough of the strength training (my own fault), the amount and variance of the running was just right for me to avoid injury and I got 3:06 at Chicago, a 37 minute PB!

    Got me a sub 3 and a podium

    this plan guided me to a 2:58:11 marathon, shaving off nearly half an hour from my previous pb. even got me a 3rd place podium at my local race.

    plan is easy to follow and don't worry about switching around sessions a bit - it still works.

    Broke all my expectations

    Used this plan when it was the Sub 3 hour plan. This has now been further refined. I thought 3h was an ambitious goal, but this plan made me much fitter than anticipated. After a warm up 20 mile race around 6 weeks before MCR Marathon, I changed my goal to 2:45 and ran 2:45:02 on the day! Great plan, easy to follow and definitely got me fitter than ever!

    London Marathon 2023 - 2:59:47 (Sub 3 Achieved!)

    This is my second marathon and second plan of Ben's I've followed. Previously using the level 3 intermediate. Purchased the next level up with the aim of it taking me to a sub 3 and it delivered! Prior pb to this 3:11:47 LM Oct 21.

    Had a good amount of volume which progressed at a manageable rate and the necessary pace sessions to get me ready on race day for sub 3 running. Really well laid out.

    Thanks again Ben for helping me hit my goal!

    Tough plan but got the result I wanted

    Purchased the level 4 plan as I wanted to stretch myself by training with higher mileage and more intensity to get me to sub 3.30.

    The plan itself is intense with 5/6 days a week of training, but the mix of sessions was enjoyable and felt like they were taking me in the right direction, you do have to be 'all in' I think and follow the plan.

    Today I knocked 9 minutes off my previous PB going from 3.33 down to 3.24, which I was delighted with.

    Overall very pleased with the plan, would recommend it to someone who has the time to dedicate to the 6 days per week and the pretty high mileage.

    Got me a sub 3!

    This plan has just helped me get a sub 3hr time at Boston UK marathon. (2:58:05)
    Loved the mix of training sessions, mileage was achievable and paces just felt right.
    Sure the Ben Parkes hat also played a part...
    Highly recommend using one of Ben's plans (and hat).

    3:09:14 Marathon

    So last Sunday I just finished my Marathon with the time of 3:09:14 and I'm quite satisfied with it.

    I would say this is a great plan to follow if planning to run 3:15 or faster. I did missed a few workouts during the 15 weeks build-up due to a little niggle here and there but that's okay because after week 12 I felt stronger than before, after completing all the long run's training, going into the race.

    I will absolutely be using this plan again for my next Marathon build-up and see what can I achieve!
