    5K PB

    Loved this 5K programme. Very well structured with varied sessions and a good amount of goal pace running which really helped me get comfortable at race pace. Ran a 19:20 in March and have just run an 18:25 with a strong headwind (possibly could have gone quicker!) absolutely made up with it and will be purchasing a marathon programme later in the year. Thanks a lot Ben!

    Great plan

    Lays out a program and gets you running faster. I especially like the pace charts. My only complaint is this level is a bit low on mileage.

    2nd plan from Ben

    After using one of Ben's Marathon plans, which got me a sub 4 hour on my first Marathon, I have purchased the 5k improver to wedge in before Brighton training block begins. These plans are great value for money and it doesn't matter if you work in miles or kms as these plans cover both.
    Very easy to follow with even suggested paces for the various workouts for the time you are aiming for
    I thouroughly recommend giving one a try

    Just brilliant

    I am on my third plan now. I’ve PB’d in 10k, HM and hopefully I will achieve my goal with 5k too. These plans are detailed but easy to follow. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them and it’s given me the focus I needed.

    Keep up the great work and thank you :)

    Finally a sub-20 PB!

    Ben Parkes' 5k advanced plan was easy to follow, motivating and totally doable. I really enjoyed the structure each week. After a month of knee injury holding me back at the start of the season, this plan finally got me to a sub-20 minute 5k, a time I had been chasing for so long! Thanks so much!

    Great plans, with great detail

    Have used Ben’s marathon and 5km plans and love the details with pace ranges, the fact the kilometres are provided as well as miles and the weekly plan set ups and workouts are fantastic.

    Two PBs in Five Months

    Plan is well conceived and presented. Honestly it is underpriced in my opinion. This guided me through two PBs (20:46->20:26->19:34) in the span of five months.

    Big thanks, Ben, for helping me Get It Done.

    Oh and I looked pretty slick running them in some Ben Parkes hats.

    A realistic plan that works wonders!

    Awesome plan which allows some flexibility around every day life. Can shift days around to suit you. Garmin watch never told me I was in the wrong training zones and always showed a performance benefit on the harder sessions. The plan ended with a 31 second PB, dropping under the 20 minute mark for 5k (19.41). Thanks Ben and Sarah!

    A good mix of workouts

    I really love the fact that the plan is so well colour-coded. It looks really important hanging there in the kitchen and reminding me of doing my workout; these are really well thought through and give you a good mix of interesting and effective things to do. love it so far!

    Great Value

    This is such a great value for the price. Even if this plan doesn't work, it gives a great baseline to work off. It's great to have an experienced runner like Ben lay out a detailed plan and explain everything. I haven't finished the plan but I am already seeing improvements.
