    Great Plan For My First Marathon

    I can't fault this plan. This was the first structured running plan that I've ever followed, preparing for my first ever official race, and all went to plan thanks to the clear guidance.

    Everything was easy to follow and I especially found the pace chart extremely useful. The glossary was really helpful for a plan newbie like myself and the notes for each week were a really nice added extra.

    I was aiming for a sub 4 hour marathon debut and managed a time of 03:53:44 so I'm absolutely chuffed! Thanks Ben :-)

    Improver Marathon Training Plan - New PB

    Really great training plan, I would highly recommend it. Enjoyed every week, and the training was varied so that it never got boring. The speed and tempo sessions were fun and putting pace changes in the long run session really kept them interesting. I ended up fitter than I have ever been, and knocked 20 minutes off my Marathon PB! Many thanks Ben and Sarah

    Manchester Marathon 2019 (03:48:14) - my first marathon

    On Sunday 7th April 2019, I completed my first marathon in Manchester, in a time of 03:48:14.

    The best thing I did was invest in a decent training plan. I opted for a Ben's Improver training plan, as it’s well structured & easy to understand. I value his knowledge & experience.

    The training plan was challenging but built up sensibly so confidence & fitness grew steadily and at no point did I feel the training was beyond me.

    The plan includes a great pacing chart, so every session has a recommended pace it should be run at for your finish time. I would recommend the training plan without hesitation and have since used Ben's Half Marathon Level 4 plan to achieve an 8 min PB.

    Whilst I was delighted to achieve a sub4 marathon time at the first attempt, it was never about time. I found greater meaning.

    I have taken the family marathon baton from my Dad. Hopefully, I can pass it onto my Daughter in the future.

    Most importantly, I got to share and experience, not only race day, but the full marathon training journey with my family.

    You only ever get your first marathon once.

    I wouldn’t change it in any way.

    Great plan

    I have just ran my first marathon (Yorkshire) using this plan and it has been so good at building up my fitness and miles steadily.
    It was great working towards the marathon distance and feeling that I was pushing myself to achieve something amazing. The plan gave variety each week, it never felt boring, and I knew I could trust that if I followed the plan I could achieve it.
    I like that the plan gets you to run up to 23 miles. I needed to do that for my confidence before the big day.
    Finished in 4 hours and 25 minutes.

    I ran the London Marathon. It was my first marathon and completed it in 4hrs 39secs. Well structured plan and easy to understand.


    I found the plan extremely helpful in prepping for my first marathon, 2019 London marathon. After discussing with Ben which plan would suit my sub4 aim, I went for the L2 plan. It worked a treat and I came away with a 3.56. The plan is easy to follow and combined with Ben's YouTube videos and Strava posts, you can even more out of it. Can't thank you enough Ben. Stepping up to L3 for the prep for Berlin in September.
