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 🙂
Really like the plan! It’s simple, easy to follow and strikes a good balance between rest days, running and strength / cross training etc. will certainly aim to build from this and would use intermediate / advanced plans in future!
So started to do some running after a few years on my bike and so far this have been really good and fun , so i can recomend the plans.
Excellent and easy to understand steps to improve your half marathon time - and it’s free
really great plan, perfect for beginners, not complicated, just stick to the plan and results guaranteed
Thank you Ben and Sarah! This was my 2nd ever half Marathon (Stafford Half Marathon), my first was September last year and I ran it in a time of 2hrs 11mins and I was happy. But after I picked up a silly injury, didn’t run much through the winter and subsequently lost quite a bit of fitness. I decided, I needed a plan and chose this level 1 beginners plan. Followed it as much as possible, but life does get in the way and come race day, I ran a time of 1hr 58mins. I couldn’t believe it, not only did I beat my first time from September, but I also managed to get under 2hrs. Thanks to this plan….. ‘I Got It Done’. Thank you
Ran the race in 02:05, so grateful- Thank you Ben!
