Running

Sophie specialises in half marathon, marathon and ultra running coaching. Whilst she offers discount for groups who are training for a specific event, she generally coaches on a  1-2-1 basis, which is delivered remotely.

All coaching packages offer dedicated and professional advice

Regardless of experience, they are tailored to meet individual needs and are adapted as fitness improves and goals are achieved. They are designed to enable the athlete to:​​

Go Faster & Avoid Injury

From working with beginners to elite athletes the aim is to see quantifiable performance improvements achieved safely.

 

Manage Goals

Working together we can set, manage and work towards realistic goals, with a pathway to success clearly mapped out. 

Manage Time

Sessions are focused on ensuring maximum training impact, with no 'junk' miles. Regardless of the coaching package each session will have clear objectives and purpose.

Train Consistently

Help with prioritising the many unavoidable obstacles that get in the way of training

Monitoring your progress

She uses a platform called Training Peaks (which athletes will need to download), which is a mobile and desktop application dedicated to smart and effective endurance training. It is an incredibly powerful tool for monitoring progress, viewing set sessions and for communicating between coach and athlete.

All sessions are clearly laid out, emailed to the athlete daily, automatically added to a personal calendar, can be uploaded to a watch/bike computer and are colour coded to confirm if the session has been competed correctly.

Athletes are asked to add comments post sessions to give them context and to help monitor them. This level of communication helps avoid injury, or sickness through over training and helps me ensure they are being pushed at the correct level.

Sessions can be monitored remotely through a variety of different metrics including heart rate, pace/speed, power.

Run Analysis

£50 Per Hour

Face-to-face training sessions with Sophie offer undivided, personalised support focusing on run technique, strength, stretching and drills. Contrary to popular belief, running is a technical sport; good running form and biomechanics are not as common as many people think. Out of the three disciplines in triathlon, running is the most likely cause of injuries; ensuring good technique can help reduce the chance of injuries.

Running is not just about the legs,  it is a whole body activity when done correctly, the upper and lower limbs should work as a coordinated whole when done well.

In triathlon running is the last discipline, when athletes are most fatigued and when speed is most important. A one-to-one session with Sophie can help develop an armary of techniques to help you maintain form when it counts.
