Running is my happy place. And I love to share my joy, and knowledge of running.
In all my running groups and classes it's my aim for you to enjoy the experience and to really learn to love running for the long term.
Have you always wanted to run? Or have you fallen out of the running habit after having children?
Then my beginners's running workshops would be just the thing.
Join me for running workshops designed to prepare and support you to fit and healthy running for life. I offer beginner running workshops, intermediate run training, a weekly group run and one-to-one run training.

All NEW for September 2018
Many previous participants of the beginners' workshops have asked for additional support, so I have put together a new set of improvers running classes - to work on your strength, pace and running fitness in a 30- 45 minute run specific training session. Sessions will take place in Flax Bourton and Failand.

Why sign up to a beginner's coursE?
Did you know that core strength is essential to improve your running style? That weak glutes can lead to sore knees? That simple changes to posture can improve your endurance? I'll give you guidance on how to build strength, stamina and flexibility for long term benefits to your running.
Workshops will take place over 6 weeks on a Thursday or Saturday morning in beautiful locations just 15 minutes from Bristol. Each session will include a warm up, some strength, conditioning and flexibility exercises as well as a 2-3 mile walk/run on various terrain. In our final week we will cover a 5k distance.
Workshops topics will include:
Effective warm up and stretching
Posture and core - key exercises to take home
Strength training - key exercises to take home
Increasing your speed through interval training
one to one running support
If you're looking to train for a 5K or 10K and would like one to one support in devising and implementing a training plan, then get in touch via the form below about how I can develop a bespoke programme to suit you.
Monday night running group
Come and join me and a friendly group of female runners every Monday evening at 7.30pm for a 30 - 40 minute run in Long Ashton. The group is registered with Run Together and you can book yourself in for a run here.
We meet outside the Little Tipple on the Weston Road in Long Ashton for a run of approximately 3 miles around the village. Anyone is welcome, whether you're a beginner or a more experienced runner. It's a sociable group and all levels are welcome. No runner is too slow, honestly! We stick to well lit roads around the village in the winter, but get more adventurous once the evenings get lighter.
Come and join us every week. You can either pay as you go (£3 per session) or join as a member (£5.50 per month).
