Do you want to achieve more in your running?

Are you passionate about running but struggling in one or more of these areas:

  • Motivation
  • Consistency
  • Staying injury free
  • Setting ambitious and realistic goals
  • Finding a training plan that works for you
  • Nutrition
  • Having enough time for all the above

Don’t worry – it is difficult to do everything effectively on your own. Although I am a qualified running coach, I too have a coach of my own to help with some of these areas.

Having a coach takes the guesswork out of training. If you don’t have a lot of knowledge in running, strength work and nutrition then it can be time consuming and daunting trying to learn the most effective tools for your training.

And even if you do know your stuff in these areas, it is sometimes difficult to look at your own training objectively. Are you pushing yourself too hard or not enough?

Bespoke one-to-one run coaching

One-to-one coaching is a two-way process. You know your dreams and fears better than anyone but by working with me directly we can work out the best way to help you achieve your goals whilst fitting in with your day to day life.

I will also help you stay motivated and consistent with your training. By meeting every month to discuss your progress, we can tweak the plan and solve any issues you may have. We can factor in holidays and busy times at work and at home.

And you don’t need to wait to the monthly call if anything arises. You can message me throughout the plan to ask any questions you may have.

I use TrainingPeaks with all my athletes. You can get a free account and download the app where you will get all your training plans. You can link your watch so that workouts sync after you complete them which helps to track your progress. You can add in how you feel and comments for us both to reflect on.

What do clients like about the coaching:

So much!! Accountability ~ having a 4 weekly plan instead of much longer plans that can seem overwhelming ~ takes the “planning” off my shoulders ~ actually talking with my coach instead of just messaging or emailing ~ having a coach to talk with that actually knows my goals, helps me set and revise them if need be, and is invested in achieving them with me. Throughout my training programme, I really felt Alan had my back and was rooting for me!

Angela

I wanted to get around my pb which was 1.24.46. I finished up with a new pb of 1.23.07!

Martin

Found it very easy to chat through struggles I was having with keeping on track. Having more protein helped both me to stay feeling full but also noticed improvement in my recovery from hard run sessions- found I recovered quicker/ wasn’t as tired. Also found myself steering away from viewing foods as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ and got a lot better and not feeling guilt for having ‘treat foods’ if still within calories for the day/week. Would recommend 100%

Claire

Friendly and informative plus if asked questions received quick response along with specific information. Always felt approachable!
