Experienced Runners

You’ve been running for years; your app tells you that you’re running well and you’re still hitting your mileage targets. But there are niggles and familiar daemons trying to undo all of your good work: that one segment you can’t crack; one distance you haven’t quite nailed…

I can offer you: technique analysis and ‘fixes’ to improve your efficiency; strength exercises to help avoid injury and those little niggles which creep in from time-to-time; training plans to offer you a strategy to overcome your barriers; support, guidance and just the right amount of challenge.

Packages available (duration and costs depend on your goals):

In person strength/technique sessions

As BRONZE + a bespoke training plan

As SILVER + strength/stretch recordings for you to do at home

As GOLD + group training with Tilehurst Runs Together
