It's going to be an exciting few weeks ahead, thank you for trusting my plan to get you there. Let me know how you get on!!
I have been running for a long time , mostly on my own and I have run at the same pace averaging around 32 mins for a 5K....I felt as though I still had it in me to get quicker and decided to purchase a 5K improver plan from Ben.
I am now 4 weeks into the plan and already I am seeing improvement and am Regularly beginning to hit times of just under 30 minutes for the first time in years.
On paper ,the plan looks fairly basic but it is more challenging than it looks especially when you add strides and periods of running at tempo pace into your running.
If anybody is looking to improve their pace at this distance then I recommend you give this plan a go.
