“I entered my first trail ultra in 2020 and was immediately overwhelmed by the number of online plans and advice available. I’ve known Rachel for a while now through the trail running community and when she announced she was available for coaching I immediately approached her for help and advice. This was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Although my race plans are currently on hold, Rachel has continued to give me a structured plan to help maintain my training and fitness. It’s great to have someone else that I’m accountable to and Rachel is always on hand to give advice, support and much needed feedback when needed.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rachel as a coach for runners of all levels and abilities. A running coach is definitely not just for elite runners. Rachel has given me much-needed structure to my training and helped me to understand the rationale behind different types of training sessions which has been invaluable.
Perhaps most importantly, Rachel has given me the motivation to get out of the door and run even on those days when I’m not feeling it. I haven’t had so much consistency in my running for years! "
" I employed Rach’s services when taking on my first half marathon and found the training so helpful in focusing where I needed to add strength. During this time by incorporating different sessions into my weekly training I broke both my 5k and 10k times which wasn’t a goal but was a measure of how much better I was getting.
For my next challenge I decided to take on a 50k race so decided to use Rach again knowing that her training works for me. Even though the race has been postponed, like most races in 2020 I decided to carry on with a training plan which Rach adapted for me to maintain fitness, motivation and to increase strength work so that I’m ready when the time comes.
I’ve found Rachel to be understanding and encouraging at all times and always happy to offer advice where needed. The plan is adapted as and when its needed taking into account a busy lifestyle. The pricing is great value for the one to one service rather than a one plan suits all approach."
