“When I decided to run Reading Half Marathon again, I was determined to beat my time from the previous year. So I turned to Paul to help me with my training .
He wrote me a bespoke training plan that fitted around my normal sports and fitness activities.
The plan pushed me far more than i would have been able to do so myself.
When you see how far / how quick you have to run, written down in black and white you just do it! Also knowing that Paul would be asking how I got on meant there was no escaping it!
The plan was very varied with different paces, distances, intensities etc. This made it far more interesting and was much more beneficial than just running the same pace and increasing the distance bit by bit, which is what I did before.
Paul was always on hand to ask any questions or talk about any particular training sessions that I felt were difficult and he adjusted the plan accordingly.
There’s no doubt that without Paul’s help I wouldn’t have got the time I wanted. His coaching got the best out of me on the day.”
