    Matt, your plans are well set out, easy to follow and have really worked for me, I am currently running 1:29 for half marathon and I need a good plan to follow to get to sub 1:15.

    I am 55 and 66kgs and I currently run 5 days a week.

      Hi Stephen, thank you for your feedback. It’s always nice to hear that the plans are working for others like they did for me. I am currently putting together the sub 1:15 half marathon training plan and so will post it on to the site as soon as it’s completed. If you would like me to drop you an email once it’s online then just let me know and I’ll do that, otherwise please revisit the site in a week or so and hopefully the plan will be online by then.
      (You won’t need to broadcast your email address to the World, just a “yes please” would do and I’ll let you know:-) )

    Hi Matt, I think your plans are great! Working through a 5k plan now with strong results so far. I’m unable to see the half marathon plans other than the 8 week plan. Hoping to follow one for the 1h45 target time but it won’t open for me. Let me know if I’m missing something obvious! Cheers.

    Hi Matt
    I’m following your sub 40 10 k training programme. I read your ‘time commitment’ part of 10 – 12 hours. I have been following it to the letter but I haven’t been clocking up anywhere near this amount of time training. Am I misunderstanding something?

    Hello Matt,
    thank you for your excellent site! I’m trying to break 28min on a 5k in3 weeks and I have been following your plan.
    My next objective will be to run a half marathon in November. Do you have a training plan to run a half marathon?


    • Matt says:

      Hi Vincent, good question. Not yet is sadly the answer but I’m currently working on the half-marathon training plans so please check the site again in the coming month for an update. Pleased you are finding the plans useful, good luck. Cheers
