The Running Plan had helped me in improving my running speed in a structured manner. I saw the improvement within a month. The TRP coaches also guided me in running more effectively. Now I have built stronger muscles, better stamina and the best part of all I don’t have any more knee pain while running. It is an awesome experience running under The Running Plan.

Coaches Jeff and Mark really know how to push you to your limit; they are experts at what they’re doing. Within an 8-week training, my running posture, pace and timing have improved beyond what I thought I was capable of. The programmes are suitable for beginners as well as running elites regardless of their age. I highly recommend their training plans!

Chicago Marathon Bank of America 2018 meant a lot to me as it’s a world marathon major. I decided to prepare early for it in my training and luckily, I discovered that The Running Plan offers an 18-weeks ‘Running Faster 42km’ training plan, which fitted nicely with my preparation dates.

I got to know about The Running Plan after Zam and I registered for our very first FM at SCKLM 2018. From zero knowledge about running, I now could apply some techniques to help me sustain during the race. Running should be a pleasure. Hence, The Running Plan makes it possible!

Love their programmes! They are hard without being grueling. Never really understood technique involved in running till I came upon the running plan. I’d highly recommend Mark and Jeff to anyone who wants to run better.

After signing up to run the Singapore marathon 2018, I purchased a 14-week training plan from TRP. I pretty much stuck to the plan, incorporating some of the group sessions run by Jeff, Mark and Michelle. The sessions are great, really well organized and they’re suitable for experienced runners or those new to running. Sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation for hill repeats or fast intervals but when you’re doing them as part of a group, they’re more fun, there’s a bit of competition, and of course encouragement from the Running Plan trainers.

Being a social runner, I am interested in finding the excitement in running. At the same time, I want to improve and challenge myself to the limit. I bought (and followed) the Running Faster 42km Training Plan from TRP, and it was extremely beneficial. I managed to clocked my best time in my latest marathon race in Kyoto. I recommend their plans; whether you’re a beginner who wants to move from couch to road, or from 21k to 42k; or even improving your time from running 7hours to 5hours in 42k. You will see the obvious improvement.

I took up a 14-week plan from TRP in preparation for the Kyoto Marathon 2019. My previous PB was 3:39 and I wanted to do a sub 3:30 for my 3rd FM distance. I’ve never trained with a proper structured programme before. In the 10th week of the program, I ran a HM race and a PB came with it for a 5th place. I knew I was improving but still not sure how my form will be for the full distance. Kyoto came, and I hit another PB, taking a massive 22mins off and running 3:17! I was over the moon! Thanks to coach Jeff Ross and the TRP program. It really works! Just believe in it and believe in yourself.

I started running in 2016 as a way to beat my depression and to prove myself wrong as I’ve been telling myself my entire life that I’m never going to be a runner. I started running with no technique whatsoever and my first 10k was completed in more than 2 hrs. with my weight around 80kg.

I started running with Mark Williams when I joined Alice Smith School in 2013, aged 12. At that time, I was really getting into triathlon. My first session with Mark was a 3k time trial where I ran 14:10. The next week I did it again and got 13:40, and then I did a cross country race and got 12:42 a few weeks later. I noticed that the progress I was making was significant and I knew that I wouldn’t have done this without Mark’s help.

I joined The Running Plan in early 2018 in preparation for SCKLM, to diversify my training. I had previously followed training programs for half marathons, but neglected the importance of speedwork and interval training. The Tuesday classes with Jeff and TRP have since been a great way for me to incorporate hard workout sessions in my training. The coaching and environment makes me push harder than I ever would have done by training alone. And the outcome is visible. Most notable, I was able to finish the recent SCSM18 in 3h47m, an improvement of around 20 minutes since SCKLM18. I would highly recommend TRP, if you want to improve your running and finisher times.

In 2014 I started my running journey; my first race was a 2k kids run in my neighborhood where I managed to bring home the silver medal. I was a 9-year-old on a high and I was very excited to get better. I asked my mother if I could get a coach and we found a running group, now called The Running Plan. Since my mum was making the journey and dropping me off, she also decided to join!

Running is a complex sport. What I did in my first year of running was go hard every time I went for a run. I didn’t have a plan, and I didn’t have anyone to teach me about running. But when my friend Raj started opening OCR class with The Running Plan, I signed up and went for training. I knew Raj was good but I didn’t know there’s method to his madness! Immediately my OCR skills improved a few notches. Then I went for a class with coach Mark, and he improved my running further. After this class I got myself a “running faster 5km” plan from them with the hopes of getting below 25 minutes in 8 weeks. Surprised myself with personal best of 22 minutes instead. So, I believe running is a complex sport and there’s a lot to learn from the coaches at The Running Plan. And now I’m joining their classes to prepare myself for Tokyo marathon in March and you should too!

Prior to joining the running plan’s group classes, i had no consistent training or guidance, and that made me think that i was never going to be as good as i was before. But surprisingly, i still achieved the unachievable! When i crossed the finish line of the Bukit Jalil CCC run, i was ecstatic. I just ran, stayed positive and remembered the techniques that Coach Jeff and Mark taught me.

With just 3 classes and just 3 weeks into my training plan, I managed to get a sub 6 pace on a route with hills. I really have to thank Mark and Jeff for helping me get the best 10km placing so far for a run!

I was not much of an athlete back in my school days. I began to pick up running a few years ago as a form of escapism from my hectic schedule. When I came across TRP in the beginning of the year, I was immediately intrigued to know more and quickly signed up for the first session. And I must say it was the best decision ever.

The best decision I made for myself early this year with regards to running was to join The Running Plan. I initially bought the Training Plan for Beginners but was not disciplined enough. Then I spoke to Jeff, signed up for the Saturday classes and the rest is history.

I started running in 2016 when i accidentally ran into top 10 male runner of KL Bar Run 2016, back then i did not know and never really care about my running time or what Personal Best is because for me, running is just a workout to keep myself fit until i attended Mark’s first training session with my running group. I still remember it was a 500m interval sessions and i gave up after i did 5 times while the others did 8. Mark really taught me and willing to share with me on a lot of running knowledge i.e. the running posture, how to breath, how important to pace yourself, etc. I started to find my passion in running.

I was a social runner who would sign up for a bunch of the running races around KL just because of the finishing medals and iced Milo and of course to take post-race pictures! A change happened when I went along with some running friends to do the Angkor Wat 21km. My friends comfortably finished. I too finished, but was broken and exhausted – I realized my issue was I didn’t have the long-distance stamina and couldn’t pace myself to finish strong.

For those who knew about my 2nd hamstring tear in late 2016, will also be aware that races took a backseat in 2017, due to recovery. So, in early 2017, Awan introduced me to Jeff. Given that Awan at that point has started training under TRP, I too took the step to try out the plans. If an accomplished runner like him have faith in the program, it sure will be beneficial for me too.

Joanne Grange

Having decided to take up running in 2013, I decided to take some training from Mark. This became the kick start for my passion in long distance running. I competed in my first full marathon in 2014 in Borneo, which was achieved by following Mark’s 7-week programme, enabling me to run at a reasonable level and suffer no real pain after the run.

James Hay

My son, who is coached by Mark Williams, persuaded me to join him for a running session in 2016. We ran a 5km time trial and my time was 31:19. I’d been a regular jogger up to that point and, at 53 years of age, I reckoned that wasn’t a bad time. In 2017 I ran the same course in 23:40. How have I achieved this? By following Mark’s training plan every week.

KK Yum

I started training with Mark in 2013 as I needed to add speed work to my training. Not long after I started, I achieved a sub 4-hour marathon in Korea. My best streak was in 2016 when I ran sub 4-hour marathons in 3 consecutive weeks. All these results were due to following Mark’s training plans.

Michelle Chua

When I started running in 2014, I didn’t have a training plan because I used to think all I needed to do was run 3 days a week. If I skipped my run on Monday to Thursday, I would cram all 3 runs on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday! That was my routine for 2 years and I showed minimal improvement.

Viki Lim

Coach Mark’s programme has not only made me a better runner, but it has that special “X-Factor” that helps keep me motivated and pushes me to achieve my personal best!

Arash Eghbali

As a competitive runner, I am always trying to improve my speed and efficiency. Mark’s feedback has helped me to correct my running form and his training programmes have pushed me to run faster and faster each year! I recommend The Running Plan website to all runners.

Malaysian Bar Cross Country Team

Science plays an important role in sports and Mark’s training programmes are scientific, methodical, efficient and results-oriented. Mark trains our group with passion and determination, and the team has improved tremendously in terms of speed, posture, gait, as well as team unity. I strongly recommend Mark’s training programmes to runners who wish to take that extra mile to improve their running. – Lilian Lee, Malaysian Bar Cross Country Team Co-convener

Audrey Law

Having not done much exercise in over 25 years, I had decided to aim for a healthier lifestyle. Mark’s training programmes makes runners of all abilities push themselves to their own individual limits. My son and I look forward to our training, and even though we run at different speeds, we both get huge satisfaction from completing the training. I’ve reduced my 5km PB from over 35mins to sub 26min, and my son has been selected for the Malaysian Schools National Cross Country Championship.

I have been training with Mark Williams since 2012. Back then, running a loop of 2.3 km was a struggle for me, but in the last 5 years I have completed several marathons and in 2016 I was lucky to finally grab some top 10 positions! I think that is a vast improvement bearing in mind I was not at all sporty previously.

Tony Heneberry

At 52 years of age, I returned to running… well, jogging, actually! After a break of over 12 years it was a sweaty, flabby return, with very low aspirations other than to have some basic fitness! Fast forward 3 years and I have lost 15kg, run over 6,000km, including 2 marathons, dozens of half marathons, and half ironman events.

Tom Sarginson

I’ve been a runner for the past 20 years and having competed in 20+ half marathons, I’ve always considered myself ‘not bad’ at it. But waking up on New Year’s Day and committing to running a 10k in sub 40 minutes was a whole new level. Cue Coach Jeff!
