Just started the 4th week of a level 5 HM plan and absolutely loving it. It’s testing me to the absolute limit but is fun as well. Thanks Ben
Loved the plan, it shook things up more than those I've done in the past, and I managed a PB of 76:28. Happy days!
This is my second plan from Ben in a year. First I got my 10k PR done, now it was time to get under 1u25 in the Half Marathon. It's insane how good this plan works. I finished in 1u21 and did 6(!) minutes from my previous PR which a ran just 6 months ago. Wearing a Ben Parkes hat, of course helped me as well. ;-) Next up: Marathon sub 3 plan! #gettingitdone
I've just finished week 1 of the program and I'm very pleased. A great guide and easy to follow. My race is off-road and I mix it up with club runs so I can't follow it too the letter but thats fine. Anyone who asks about training programs I also recommend Ben Parkes.
Hi, I am in the third weekend of the program and I am very satisfied, I recover quickly between runs and feel improvement ... We will wait for the official measurement day of the half marathon, believe that if I can stick to the program I will be satisfied and of course a good result. I bought the shoes and you have a part in my decision through the social networks you responded to my question, thank you so much so far. Enjoy following you on the networks
This plan came at the perfect time for me having run 1:26 in November 2020. It's my goal to run sub 1:20 and I'm using this plan for a race in the Spring. What I like most about Ben's plans is that they are very clear and the workouts aren't overly complex. They also allow a high degree of flexibility and are good value for money. I've every confidence I will be a much fitter runner by the end of the plan.
Brought this plan to help reduce my half marathon PB time and i am a month into the plan. It is simple to follow and allows accountability (it is sat on my fridge! Follows sound training principles of easy running to build up mileage combined with hard interval or threshold sessions which are always varied and interesting. I have already seen significant benefits to my flat speed and endurance. A fantastic plan and great value - Thanks Ben!
