I followed this plan in an attempt to get a pb at the Battersea Park 10k and it worked well. My previous attempt at a 10k was just under 46 minutes and following Ben's plan I knocked this down to 39:14, so I'm satisfied with the result. The easy to follow structure of the plan with clear pace charts was very helpful. Thanks Ben!
Great plan, easy to follow and with lots of different runs which makes it fun going on a run even when you don't feel it.
My 10k pb was 44:40 and I managed to take it down to 41:35. Unfortunately I didn't break the 40min mark, but a 3 minutes pb is still something I'm very proud of, so Thank you Ben (and Sarah)
This plan is perfect if you want some structure. The sessions are brilliant and the pace chart is very helpful. It is a really well constructed plan that will definitely get you ready for race day!
Last summer I had little motivation to do any running, so I decided that this summer was going to be different. And this seemed to be the perfect plan to follow. My P.R going in was 38.57min on the 10k, but after following the eight week plan i ended up with a new P.R at 37.11min. The program is easy to follow, and motivates you while the weeks go on. I’ll continue using this program until I see that 35min number om my stat sheet. Thank you, Ben! Eric(Norway)
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!
