Half Marathon Intermediate - L3
Welcome to the Level 3 Intermediate half marathon plan!
I’ve designed this for anyone who has run a half and looking to step up and set a PB.
Designed for people targeting a 1:35 to 1:45 finish time.
The first week is 23 miles or 37k.
The biggest week is 40 miles or 65km
There are four to five runs each week.
The plan has both miles and kilometres.
It is 12 weeks in length, with structured training, recovery and taper weeks.
There are suggested paces for all the runs.
Terminology page describing each type of run, so you’ll always know what to do.
Space for strength training and suggested exercises.
- By purchasing the plan you agree to the terms and conditions laid out here.
All the tools you need to get you that PB. Let me know how you get on, keep in touch, I’m always here to help!
This training plan helped me to improve my PB at Our local half-Marathon (1:38). Varied runs and good tips and instructions on how to do the different runs, what speed to maintain for different training etc. The plan is split in two, with distances and speeds in both miles and km, which is good (miles is useless to us Norwegians). Thanks, Ben!
This plan has helped me alot to achieve my goals in half marathon. A good varied training plan and not too hard on the legs either
Great training plan. Easy to understand, very clear and well laid out. I always use Ben's plans. Well worth it. Love the pace chart to help set specific times for each session depending on your goal pace. Thanks Ben.
Managed to take 7 minutes off my pb with the help of this plan. 👍
Bought this plan to try to hit my (ambitious!) target of sub 1hr 40 in the Manchester Half. I finished with a PB of 1:39:17 so it worked out perfectly. I didn't follow it to the letter as I was already doing other activities (football 1-2 times per week and a bit of cycling) but it brought a much needed structure to my training with proper pacing and distance guidelines to follow. The plan mixes the sessions up nicely and builds the speed and distance gradually, so you never feel like it's getting too much to handle. I'll be moving on to a marathon plan next!
