Level 1 and 2 Lydiard Coach
Leading in Running Fitness
Co-founder of ‘Chatty, Sparkly Runners’
Area of Expertise & Speciality:
I specialise in coaching beginners and have helped many people take up running in our local area. I have developed my own Walk to Run programme based on Lydiard training principles. This approach makes sure that people enjoy running and want to continue. With my partner, Colin Lancaster, I have developed ‘Chatty, Sparkly Runners’ to spread the ‘easy running is best’ message to a wider audience.
Experience as an Athlete:
I have been running since the 1980’s and ran a good 10k in my twenties but am now happy keeping fit and helping others to do the same.
Running doesn’t have to be hard work.
I encourage new runners to listen to their bodies from the outset, run gently and be kind to themselves.
My golden rule for beginners is:
‘If you can’t talk walk!’
