Even though I've ran marathons and ultra marathons. I'm recovering from cancer so i though I'd start from the beginning again. This is a fantastic plan and i can feel the benefits.
Really good starter programme, good for getting me back into it after a 2 year hiatus! Will definitely be getting more plans! Thanks
I’m finding this plan works as a great template and gives me space to do what’s best for me. Thank Ben!
This is the first training plan I've ever followed despite many years of racing. I'm a slower older female runner aged 56, and decided to download the free beginner plan as I usually complete my half marathons in around 2:25. This plan is manageable around full time work and family commitments. It also allows adequate recovery time for someone of my age. I'm really enjoying the variety in pace and run types - prior to this I just plodded along. The plan is very easy to follow and is very achievable. I would thoroughly recommend giving it a try if you're thinking of following a plan. Fingers crossed I might be able to knock some time off my 2:19 PB. Thanks Ben.
After years of the odd 10k decided at 59 to give the Half Marathon a go and with your tips and following your awesome training plan finished it in 1 hour 52 minutes. Onwards to the next one. Keep up the great work😀🏃♂️
I used this program for my first half marathon and it was super easy to follow and fit into a busy lifestyle. I exceed my expectation and got a great time.
Not ran the distance since my 1st 4 half's ran in 2019. Manchester 1 40 to Sheffield 1 45 (5 mile climb from start) running milage well down last 12 months after knee issues turns out it's degenerative wear tear in right medial meniscus after MRI in June. Plan clear n easy but will probably purchase next level up. Got 11 weeks to worksop half I deferred from last year
Good plan, decent variety of speed work, recovery, hills etc. Clearly explained and good having in miles and km. Keep Getting It Done 🙂
