Coaching

Package

My Bespoke Coaching package provides the premium level of personal coaching support to ensure you get the challenge, enjoyment and results from your running that your hard work and commitment deserves.

What makes the difference?

The key difference is the personal touch you get. The most important aspect of coaching is regular communication between athlete and coach. Hence, we keep in touch by weekly telephone calls. That way you know you are doing the right training at the right time for you. You get the support of all my elite level of knowledge and running experience when you need it.

How do we get started?

Before we start we get to know each other with a detailed initial assessment. This can be either be face to face or via video call. We take an in depth look at your running including previous training, injury history, running style, physical preparation and movement skills. Then your fully personalised training programme is tailored to fit around your work, family and other commitments. I ensure we make the most of your time whether you can run every day, once a week or it varies from week to week.

How do we keep in touch day to day?

Your bespoke plan is set on Training Peaks. Therefore its easy and convenient for you to see your training schedule each day and let me know how it went using the Training Peaks app. From Training Peaks I can see all of the data from each session you run too. And we can share mutual feedback on each run. It’s easy to review and amend your schedule so you know your training plan is responsive and progressive. We can also keep in touch by phone, message and email to ensure you have the regular coaching support and advice you need.

It’s not just about running

To support your running we also have a monthly video session to focus on running-specific strength and conditioning exercises and drills. I provide a fully-personalised programme to develop your strength, improve your technique, and minimise injury. This is supported by basic nutrition advice for your training and racing. Finally, I bring all my top-level competition experience to your races. You get tailored race-day advice and post-race feedback. This gives you the confidence and belief to successfully translate training into performance.
