Custom training plans based on you, your fitness level and your goals.
Take the guesswork out of your half marathon and marathon training with a custom training plan from a qualified online running coach to prepare you for race day.
I'm a qualified running coach and will create a training plan completely tailored to you, workouts will be suited to your goal and pacing zones assigned during your training are based on your fitness level and race goal. The custom pacing zones are designed so that you run at paces that suit your fitness level throughout your training, not so you're left exhausted after very session. We will work together to make your running fit around your schedule and get you to the start line ready to run. I have been running marathons for over 10 years and hold a running coach qualification from world famous coach Jack Daniels, this experience and knowledge is how I get my clients to reach their goals and enjoy race day.
With an online running coach, you no longer need to worry about writing your own plan, wondering if you’re running enough or training correctly for your race. Get a structured plan from an experienced coach with precise pacing zones and proven workouts each week so you can head to the start line prepared. I specialise in half marathon and marathon coaching as these are the distances I have the most knowledge about and where I am the most specialised.
Qualified VDOT O2 Distance Running Coach
I'm a qualified VDOT O2 Distance Running Coach, by working with me you'll be getting a training plan from a qualified coach and seasoned runner who knows what it's like to train for a race and can build a custom training plan for you. My marathon PB is 2:52 and I'm currently training for The Boston Marathon 2020.
My qualification comes from legendary running coach Jack Daniels, a renowned coach who has had success at the olympic level, so by working with me you will be coached by a qualified coach with a track record of getting results. Jack Daniels is known for pioneering the VDOT tables and having a huge influence on running with his research and success as a coach, this is why I chose to follow his tried and tested methods and use them in my coaching style.
VDOT is short for V̇O2 Max (pronounced V dot O2 Max) and is the amount of oxygen you consume in 1 minute while running and will give an accurate insight into your fitness level and your running ability. After an initial consultation I will calculate your VDOT value and use this to calculate your specific pacing zones for each type of run in your plan. This takes out the guesswork of how fast to run your easy runs, tempo runs, intervals and long runs. Instead you will be running them at paces suited to you and your goal. I will then create a custom training plan that is tailored to you and structured towards your goal. You can find out more about this qualification here.
If you have an upcoming race and have set yourself a goal, then I want to help get you there with one of my custom plans. Being coached is the best way to take your running to a new level and reach the goals you’ve set for yourself on race day.
