Plan Details / Who is this for?

I’ve designed this for anyone who has already broken 18 minutes in the 5k and is looking to improve on their time.

The first week is 26 miles / 58km.

The biggest week is 56 miles / 90km.

Six to eight runs each week, with at least one rest day.

The plan has both miles and kilometres.

10 weeks in length, with easy to understand structured training with time set aside for you to implement your own strength training.

Optional Strength Routine Add On

The 'Plan + Strength Routine' option includes the full plan plus 3 integrated "at home" strength routines with warm up and cool down exercises.

Beginner friendly and easy to follow.

No equipment necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the training plans in miles or kilometers?

We have written the training plans in both miles and kms, both of which are included in the PDF file so you can refer to whichever one suits you.

The pace charts are also in miles and km's too.

How will I receive my plan?

You will receive an email with a link to download your plan straight after purchase.

You can also click a link on the checkout success page.

This will download the PDF file to your computer, tablet or phone. 

What format do the training plans come in?

The plans are a downloadable PDF file which you can view on any device or print off.

You will be emailed the link to download your plan.

Please note the plan can only be downloaded a maximum of 5 times. 

I feel I am in between two training plans, which one should I go for?

Each plan gives the number of days of training per week, so we’d advise going for the one which best fits in with your current lifestyle and commitments.

Also consider the number of miles or km's for the first week and peak week and compare that figure to where you are currently.

The best success will come from following a plan that is achievable given your lifestyle and current fitness.

Great Plan

This is the 5th plan I've purchased from Ben and each time I have achieved the target time. I'm currently in the middle of this 5k lvl 5 plan and I already did a 5k PB in a training session. The plan is varied and challenging without being excessive. In general great training plan.
