About run coaching

Hello! I’m Marcus.

If you’re reading this, you are probably interested in improving as a runner. That’s something that I can help you with.

Most people that I work with have a specific ambition, such as an event or a race, in mind. Some runners don’t have an outcome goal. Instead their aim is to improve the process of training, rather than simply going out running. Others runners seek ways to balance their training so that running enhances, rather than detracts from, their lives.

Whatever it is, I can help you to achieve far more than you ever thought possible. You’ll enjoy both the challenge of improvement and the support that outstanding run coaching brings.

How it works

We talk. Our initial chat is based on getting to know you as a person and as a runner. What makes you tick? Why do you run? Why is it important to you? Why are your ‘whys’ important? We then look at some practicalities such as what your goals might be and how much time you are able to spend on these each week.

We plan. I plan out a short block of training which culminates in some form of assessment of your current fitness. This short block provides me with really useful feedback that I can use to plan for your progression towards your goal.

We talk and plan again. We talk about what we have learned through your assessment block of training and then I plan out the first stage of your progression. Each week we talk about how your training is going and we refine and adapt it so that you can be confident that we are training in ways that are beneficial. Think of the process as a weekly conversation about running (albeit a breathless one at times!)

We succeed. Each week, and each part of the training cycle, builds towards your goal. You’ll enjoy the feedback that will help to keep you focused. You’ll welcome the manageable challenge that will provide the right training stimulus at the right time.

We celebrate. When you smash your goal, we celebrate! You’ll have that tremendous feeling of satisfaction that you have achieved what you set out to do. Don’t be surprised if you’ve achieved more that you ever thought possible. I have warned you!

The above coaching package is £50 per calendar month. This includes your weekly plan, your weekly coaching conversation, unlimited email or message support, and the smug glow of satisfaction from knowing you are getting better!
