I take a non-competitive approach to my running classes, so runners are welcome to run at their own pace. If you would like to train for an event I can help guide you with a specific program and training plan.
We have runners who have done 5K fun runs, half marathons and some who turn up just to get out and keep fit. The emphasis is on running consistently, getting fitter and stronger, always challenging yourself and growing as a runner in a fun and positive environment.
Couch to 5K is a six week beginners class that will take you from walking to 5K non-stop running.
We work on technique, posture and building your fitness and distance. Couch to 5K is one of my favourite classes. I love seeing people slowly catching that running bug. You see a real change in them over the six weeks, their confidence builds as they realise this running business isn’t an elite sport, it’s for anyone who wants it. Obstacles are overcome, goals are met and quite often pounds are lost.
C25K is a pure beginner class. It is non-competitive, all you need is a positive mind and 3 hours per week.
10K Half Marathon
This year, some of our Positive Running Club members trained for a half marathon. It was the first time I had a group running together, and it was just fantastic.
We all trained together twice a week. Group training really helps to keep the fun and motivation going when the training gets tough. We had great chats, lots of tears – both of joy and of frustration – which cemented friendships and created a wonderful group of running buddies.
If you like the idea of running with a group of girls and finally knowing what it’s like to enjoy running come join us for our #RunClub.
It doesn’t really matter whether you are a 5K runner or a half marathoner, what’s important is that you run and you do it because it makes you feel good.
We all struggle during sessions, it’s human. But it’s not always hard, and afterwards you have a great sense of accomplishment, and the knowledge that when you run you have done at least one positive thing for your body and mind that day. That feels good.
