Do you need a training plan for your next race? Do you want to take on your first 5k or other distance? 

Perhaps you need some motivation to achieve your next goal or ambition in running. Whatever your goal, I can help you! 

I don’t believe in generic training plans; every person is an individual and a training plan should reflect that, my training plans take into account various bits of information about you, I send you a questionnaire to fill out and return, then we have a chat either in person or on the phone and only then do I create your bespoke training plan.

The plans take into account, amongst other things, your overall goal, your current fitness level, other training you do, your work and the time you have available to train.

The training plans are usually divided into 8 week blocks of training, but may vary depending on your personal requirements. In most plans there will be a midway benchmark session aimed at determining how the training is going.
