ATOMS Run Coaching

ATOMS Run Coaching

Running has been a big part of my life in recent years.

I remember thinking back in 2013, when I was diagnosed with MS and told by my neurologist that I should expect severe mobility issues within three years, that I had to attack my bucket list … one of those items was to run a marathon.

I signed up for a few 10ks to see if I was cut out for it, then eventually registered for the Paris Marathon. With little strategic training I pounded the streets of Paris to tick it off.

Fast forward 9 years having completed a plethora of marathons and ultra distances,  running has become an important part of my life … I am now a runner.

There were those who said to me “it doesn’t matter if you don’t finish” but to me at the time, finishing was everything. And so, running eventually became a release. As I journeyed on, uncovering what health truly meant, I started to understand the importance of movement.

It’s not just the physical benefits running has gifted me but also the mental boost. The running community is truly a powerful thing … from the parkrun nexus, to the running club, the Strava-ians, the instarunners, and WhatsApp groups to name but a few.

Having qualified a licensed Coach through UK Athletics I am now eager to work with you to achieve your running goals from a holistic approach of building the mental resilience, fitness and shaping optimal running form.

We decided on a goal to get a sub 20m 5k and improve my speed and power (I was previously a long distance runner). Alex carefully crafted an 8 week program to achieve this whilst also making intelligent edits and reductions to accommodate my busy work schedule and demanding stunt training. More is not always more! At the end of the program I could not have been happier to achieve a sub 20min time (19.28)!

Alex you are a brilliant coach and anyone would be lucky to be under your guidance to achieve their running goals. 🌟
