I'm a qualified and experienced running coach, one of the few that have trained specifically in trail, fell and mountain running (and I can and do coach road running too!) Whether coaching beginners or experienced runners, on or off-road, my focus is on working in partnership with my clients to build confidence and develop knowledge of how to run well. I focus on improving fundamental movement skills - such as agility, balance and co-ordination - as well as developing running-specific strength. The result? Stronger, faster runners, who are less prone to injury too!
Whilst I coach both men and women, I specialise in helping women to make the most of their female physiology when training, particularly those who are in, or post, menopause. I've set up the Running Through Menopause group on Facebook, which has over 1600 active members, where I provide support and advice to women from all over the world.
Being inclusive is very important to me, so whether you are an experienced runner or a total beginner, confident in your running ability or not, you'll be very welcome at Mud and miles coached sessions, runs and 1:1 sessions too.
I am a Level 2 accredited coach for Training Peaks and use this online coaching platform to provide traning plans and programmes for my one-to-one coaching clients.
I am also regularly on the 'expert' panel for Trail Running Magazine, and contribute to articles for both this and Women's Running UK magazines.
