Runtofitness client, Karen, has been training with Alex for over two years. She completed her first half marathon in March earlier this year and was inspired to keep up the training and distance by setting her sights on another half marathon.
Karen is a busy mum of three children and works full time so like many working mums, life is a constant juggling act! By having dedicated sessions with Alex she has been able to keep up her fitness and distance. Through speed work sessions they have been working on her time, aiming to reduce split time and keep consistency. One long run per week ensured that they were covering the distance, increasing this gradually week by week.
In October Karen ran across the finish line of the Manchester Half Marathon with Alex beside her, completing yet another half marathon in a great time! runtofitness is really proud of Karen as she loves running and works really hard at it despite her hectic lifestyle. She is a great example to all busy mums that running can really give you something positive and with the right help, you can achieve your goals.
Alex will always run a race with you as part of the runtofitness service for that extra motivation and support. He trains clients for all distances be it a half marathon like Karen or 5k/10k/ triathlon or marathon.
Keep a look out for Alex and Karen running in the Heatons as Karen has set her sights on another half marathon in the New Year!!
