Get some help to reach your goals

I started running in 2007 because someone told me I’d never be able to do Reading Half Marathon.

Nearly 30 half-marathons later (including one pushing my sister in her wheelchair), it’s fair to say that person was wrong.

Having volunteered at my running club for some time, I qualified as a Coach in Running Fitness and started Tilehurst Runs Together three years ago.

In that time, TRT has evolved from a group of wannabe runners, into an excellent community of dedicated and hard-working athletes. I am exceptionally proud of them and their achievements.

I will encourage and coach those taking their first tentative steps; support and challenge the more experienced athletes; help you achieve what you had thought was impossible, just as I did.

As a specialist coach, as well as a gym instructor and (soon-to-be!) PT, I can help you to run well, avoiding injury and working to your strengths. I can set you a specific training programme to get you to your goal, including strength training, timed runs and challenges to keep you motivated. I can analyse your running form and movement patterns to help identify risks and prevent injuries. I can teach you how to use your foam roller to maintain suppleness and mobility. I can give you a stretch routine which will bring your muscles back to life after a hard session. And if you really want, I can nag you and nag you and nag you…

I have coached people to their first 5k, 10k, half marathon and beyond. I have helped people achieve personal best times which they had thought unattainable. I have supported people through returns from injury and illness.

If you’ve got a running goal for 2020, why not get in touch?
