Plans

What distances do you provide plans for?

I provide training plans for endurance events – any distance from 3k up to and including a Marathon.

Do you provide plans for distances longer than a marathon (e.g. ultras)?

I don’t provide plans for distances longer than a marathon.

This requires specialist knowledge and experience that I don’t have.

Do you provide plans for multi-sport events (e.g. triathlons)?

I provide plans for running. I don’t provide plans for multi-sports, or for the running elements of multi-sports.

This requires specialist knowledge and experience that I don’t have.

Do I have to buy the data add-on to run using power?

You do not have to buy the data add-on if you run using power – we can use your existing power-based metrics to set targets and monitor progress.

You only need to buy the data add-on if you want me to provide in-depth analysis of your running fitness and and to monitor your training load.

Why are your plans so expensive?

When you work with an effective coach (someone who can help you improve while ensuring it’s enjoyable), it’s not just about the time you spend with them. It’s about the knowledge they’ve accumulated over years of experience and study … knowledge that will be used to develop and work through a well-rounded training plan. It’s taken almost seven years and hundreds of questions and answers in running groups, along with study and certification, to reach the level I’m at today – you get the benefit.

While £359 may seem expensive for a marathon plan, after the setup cost, it’s just £20 per week over the 16 weeks we’ll work together. For that £20, you get a plan that is designed to improve your running while minimising injury risk (including runs, strength & mobility workouts, and drills), you get someone monitoring your progress and working with you to adjust the plan if it’s not working as expected or if “life happens”, you get access to the running group (from1runner2another) or to me if you have any questions, you get race-day advice & strategy, and you get someone that believes in training the whole runner, rather than just focusing on the running workouts.

All for £20 per week.

Is there a beginner’s guide to running with power?

To learn about running with power, try the 5-Minute Guide to Running with Power.

I don’t have a power meter – what do you recommend?

Power Meters for running include the Stryd Footpod,  the Garmin Running Dynamics Pod, HRM-Run, or HRM-Pro, the RunScribe Plus or Red, the Polar Grit or Vantage V, and the RUNVI insoles.

Personally, I’ve used Stryd Footpods (non-wind and wind versions) since 2014 and am 100% happy with them. Plus, Stryd consistently scores highly in reviews and comparisons (fellrnr, dcrainmaker, Outside) and comes with great customer service.

Pricing / Billing

What if “life happens” and I need to take a break from training?

Should “life happen” and you need to take a break from training, just let me know. We can discuss what to do next.

Do I have to pay up-front? Or can I pay monthly?

You don’t need to pay the full amount up-front. Instead, there’s an up-front deposit, with the balance billed every 4 weeks (for Event plans) or monthly (for Starting Running or Month-by-Month plans).

This enables both of us to budget on a monthly basis.

Please refer to my Terms & Conditions for more information.

Do you charge VAT?

I do not charge VAT (Value Added Tax / Sales Tax)

Do you accept Credit Cards or PayPal?

At this time I only accept payment via bank transfer or standing order.

Why? I am a small business that needs to be careful with cashflow, including charges added by payment providers.

What are your payment terms?

All of our payment requests and invoices are due on receipt. Invoices are issued (and must be paid) prior to the next plan period.
