What I loved about Hannah was the first consultation she was genuinely interested in my running and what I wanted to achieve. She listened and cared for what I was planning to do. I was already running around 25-50 miles per week but I just wasn’t sure if a coach was right for me. It was!
Her training plan was bespoke to me, it was a mix of training which reinvigorated my love in running and gave me confidence in my running again. I loved the fact that it was varied and interesting to complete. 20 weeks of training seemed a lot but it was tailored around my work and life and felt amazing every time I ticked off a day. I got PB’s in 5K, 10K, Half Marathons and 20 miles! It would not have happened if I was just ‘doing miles!’ – it was the first time I had run to times rather than mile which allowed me to feel like I wasn’t cheating if I didn’t do 25+ miles per week and of course no more injuries!
What can I say. If you are thinking ‘do I need a running coach?’ you do! but choose Hannah – I completed the Manchester Marathon and of the 31,000+ runners I finished in the top 25%, not bad for a first Marathon and a man that turns 50 next year.
