Start to Run

Have you thought about running but find it a bit of a struggle starting on your own? Would you like to have the support and encouragement of a qualified running coach and run with people who are getting started just like you?

My Start to Run courses take you from the couch to running 5k in 8 weeks. They are friendly and social groups for beginner runners. Whether you ran at school but not as an adult, have had a break from fitness after having children, or have never ran in your life, then these courses are for you.

We start off with just 1 minute of running at a time and we always run together as a group. Throughout the 8 weeks of the start to run course I will give you tips to help you get into the running habit and enjoy yourself. At the end of the 8 weeks there will be a group run at a local parkrun, a very friendly free 5k run which takes place every Saturday morning, or another local 5k race.

All you need to begin is comfortable clothes and a pair of trainers!

Next Start to Run course

The next course will be in North Marston, Buckinghamshire in March 2017.

It’s a double feature today as I didn’t have time to do my update last week! And looking at the past fortnight I can say I had some good runs sandwiched between two not great runs. Week 7 started off with a Monday morning speed session and I really wasn’t feeling it. I got up…

Another hot week in the UK and my training started with a Monday morning speed session, this time a tempo session. 10 minute warm up, 10 minute tempo and 10 minute cool down. My next run was with my North Marston group and was a little different than usual. Two weeks ago I heard about…

Bournemouth Training: Week 5

Another early start for speed work on Monday, this time hill repeats. There were quite a few people out and about, including a lost HGV driver that I had to direct and a rather handsome looking fox who crossed my hill as I was running up it. My repeats consisted of running uphill repeats for…
