I completed the couch to 5k and with a 10k race booked wanted some help with the last couple of weeks of my 10k training as I am 46 and need structure so I don't injure myself at my old age :-). The plan is great, it was perfect for the final stages of my training and I got my first (very hilly, wet and windy) 10k in 67 minutes. Pic of me at the finish line - utterly elated. Now onto the 10k improver plan and a goal to get it under an hour for Manchester in May.
Just achieved my goal time on a 10km run thanks to Ben's beginner plan. I really enjoyed the training and managed it all without any injuries which as an older runner (mid 50s) was pretty important to me. I highly recommend it.
Doing my 1st 10k in February. This training programme is just what I need.Looking forward to working my way through it.
Easy to follow with a gradual increase until you're there!
This is a great plan and super easy to follow!
It's been a week and I'm already seeing progress
First time using a plan of this nature after completing a few previous 5/10k events.
Found that the plan was simple to follow and got me doing a lot more variety in my weekly runs which I feel really improved my performance and kept me motivated. Highly recommended for anyone whether they are a first time 10k runner or someone looking to improve.
Managed to beat my PB by over 4 minutes and will certainly be looking at using one of the half marathon plans going forward!
