With my Individual Coaching package you have a personalised training programme which recognises your unique training needs, whether you want to start running, run fitter, run further or run fast. Each week your plan is set for when you can run and your training fits around your work, family and other commitments – even if these change at the last minute. Most importantly, it is not just a training plan but a coaching package with regular contact between us to provide all the advice and guidance you need, motivation to get out of the door, focus on your goals and confidence in your ability.

As part of the initial set up I get to know you as a person as well as your current fitness, running history, targets and aspirations so that you can be confident we start from where you are now and plan the right training for you. Using the Training Peaks app makes it easy and convenient for you to see your training each day and let me know how it went. In turn, it ensures I can see all of the data from your runs so I know exactly how your running is progressing. We share mutual feedback on each run via Training Peaks as well as keeping in touch by message and email. We incorporate your races into your training plan to ensure its focused on your goals throughout, whether that’s just to finish or to run a new personal best time. Finally, because it’s not just about running, I give you advice and guidance on basic nutrition and general running specific exercises to strengthen your body, core and legs, improve your technique and minimise injury.
