I’m only on the beginners program but feeling so proud of my progress so far when I’ve not even ran to a lamppost previous to starting this guide haha! Determined to get to 5k! Feeling very grateful to Holly Brooks for starting these guides

Beginners Guide

Started the half marathon plan this week and I can already see my cardiovascular output improving in my splits 🤩 For someone that used to do a 5km every blue moon to rack up 19km this week has been so motivating

Half Marathon

I started my running journey in June and have been LOVING it thanks to these programmes!

I’m on week 3 of the half marathon plan, absolutely loving it and hitting loads of PBs already!! These tempo runs are no joke 🥴🥵

Half Marathon Guide

On week 1 of the half marathon plan and loving it, really helpful to do strength based stuff alongside it as I had to stop running recently as I kept getting injured but the strength is really helping!

Half Marathon Guide

Hollys workout and running guides are the best I’ve used, it really pushes you in a different way.

I’ve been using the Running Guide 5-10k for two weeks now and absolutely love it and can already see the improvements in my weight training and running 👌🏻

5-10k Guide

It’s a full body programme rather than just couch to 5k which concentrate a on running alone. My running improved a lot quicker using Hollys guide compared to when I’ve used Couch to 5k before 💪🏽

5-10k Guide
