    Magnus,

    Thanks for considering our plans. First you can’t choose wrong as we always allow you to switch levels within the same plan distance for free. If you find that the level you chose was too hard or too easy, just let us know and we’ll switch it.

    The real answer is: pick the level that is consistent with your ability and desire to train. If you can train for up to 12 hours a week (based on age, fitness, or personal goals), pick the level that has up to 12 hours a week.

    You can compare levels at https://www.8020endurance.com/run-level-comparison/ to give you an idea.

    In general, at 59 years old the Level 3 plan is going to be very challenging. Very few of that age can manage that level, but if you have a strong history of running you might! The Level 2 plan is tough, but possible for your age and the Level 1 plan might be the best fit.
