There can be little doubt that following a training plan written just for you with regular input from a coach whether in person or via telephone, text or email, will provide you with better results than following your own plan or one downloaded from the internet. The reason? Accountability! You are much more likely to stick with a plan if you know that someone else has a real interest in you achieving your goals. It is not very often that a training schedule goes exactly as planned often through pressure on time, injury or illness. Knowing that you have the ear of your coach will be a comfort and together, you can adjust the plan as necessary to keep you on track.
Training on you own can be a lonely experience. But training can be great fun with like minded folk. We have a running group which meets at the Downton Leisure Centre, just south of Salisbury every Friday morning at 09:00. The session lasts an hour and includes drills and interval training, on the flat, up and down some hills, on the road and through the fields. Everyone is welcome to join no matter what your level of experience. Several members of the group only started running a couple of years ago and in 2016 and 2017 they have successfully completed their first marathons and half marathons. Every one of our group running sessions ends with coffee and cake, of course!
