JS Running Coach

Personal Coaching Profiles

Rhonda / Takeley Essex

Rhonda attended the 10 week New To Running Course, unfortunately due to lock-down restrictions we were unable to complete the last 2 weeks. During the lock-down Rhonda lost motivation and struggled without having a clear plan to follow. I am pleased to say after one2one sessions Rhonda is now back on track.

Sian / Cambridge

Sian wanted Running to be a regular form of exercise, to keep her fit and healthy throughout life. However Generic Couch - 5km Training Plans were giving Sian niggling, running injuries, and preventing her from enjoying running as part of her weekly exercise. The goal with Sian was to start running again, progress sensibly without re-occurring injuries - not to set distance, pace or race goals. Yes we have achieved it! Sian now runs (injury free) 3 times per week with varying sessions and a Sunday run of 10km. The important thing for Sian has always been to run for happiness, fitness and good health. It is important as a Coach that we listen to your needs and goals.

Amanda/ Takeley Essex

A regular member of the Takeley Running Group, Amanda is having one2one sessions whilst lock-down prevents Group Running. This is a great opportunity to have a chat about personal goals, look at technique, put structure and motivation back into your training, and set new goals. Amanda is an experienced runner and has completed race distances from 5km to a full Marathon.

Claire / Great Dunmow Essex

Claire is an experienced runner, looking to improve her pace, technique, and to run more efficiently. She has a Half Marathon time that she would like to get back to, and then improve on. The goal is to work together over the coming months, using the Vitality London Half Marathon as a guide to where Claire is currently at & then to work towards an Autumn Half Marathon.

Louise / Braintree Essex

I first met Louise in 2015 when the goal was to run 1.5miles in 15 mins for the Army Reserves. I still Coach Louise on a weekly basis and over the last 5 years she has set herself various targets and goals, including Parkrun, 5km & 10km races and the Spitfire 24 hour team event. Louise has improved her technique and stamina. Despite niggling injuries along the way that have reduced training at times, Louise continues to re-access and set the next challenge. We have many giggles along the way too!

Martin / Braintree Essex

I met Martin through Louise. Louise asked if it would be possible to Coach Martin her husband at the same time, even though Martin runs at a very different pace to Louise. Yes most definitely it is possible, and also very enjoyable to have a couple or small group session. Each person can work to their own ability and I have time during the session to talk to both Louise & Martin separately. Martin is an experience runner with a competitive pace, and I enjoy coaching him through various sessions to help him run more efficiently.

Beverley / Hatfield Heath Essex

Beverley is an absolute beginner, having never attempted running before. Beverley came to me after a recommendation from Valerie May, who said "Josie can get anyone out running, give her call." We started off with only 30 seconds of running. Beverley has progressed sensibly building up to 1km and then 1 mile. Amazing lady well done.

Iris / Cambridge

Iris is a very experienced runner over many years. However like many of us had to take time off from running. Once fitness levels were back Iris contacted me to help put structure back into her training, by introducing tempo sessions, training plans and variety to her running.

Toni / Elsenham & Henham Essex

Toni's husband booked a number of sessions for her as a birthday present! Great present idea. Toni has progressed from 5km to Half Marathon, following training plans too. Toni is now a member of the Friday Takeley Running Group.

Claire / Takeley Essex

Claire enjoys the benefits of one2one sessions, and enjoys being part of the Takeley Running Group, participating in either the Wednesday or Friday sessions. Due to an achilles problem Claire has had to rest from running, however so pleased that we can now start again with a walk/run session, building up sensibly & slowly to 1k, then 1 mile, and in time 5km. Always finding time to talk & run too!
