  • Mark

    "I have really enjoyed Clare's coaching input and found her a top-class coach. I found her empathetic approach was very appropriate for me. She has a keen eye for detail."

  • Erin

    I didn't consider myself an athlete before seeking out a coach. I thought: right, I'm 57, I was just a late blooming runner who wanted some help getting to marathon distance. I was wrong. Clare helped me see that I am an athlete.... Thanks, Clare!"


What experience level should I have?

The plan is designed for regular runners capable of running at least 4 times a week including an endurance run of 90 minutes.

How much time do I need for training?

  • There are 5 training sessions prescribed for each week with a typical weekly average of 7 hours
  • Training days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays but we can help you adjust the plan to meet your needs
  • It requires weekly long runs, sometimes on consecutive days
  • The longest training session is 7 hours

How is the plan structured?

  • The plan is based on 3 week cycles, 2 weeks hard followed by an easier week
  • The training uses heart rate based training zones but can be adapted for those who do not have a heart rate monitor, or to use run power
  • We will also give you a 6 week plan leading up to your event to help you taper and refine your training
