I have never been an accomplished runner. More a jogger who pulls on her trainers to try and keep fit and manage my weight. A series of back and leg injuries meant I couldn’t run for a good 6-8 months. Starting again was daunting, painful and frustrating. Just when I thought I was making progress my body would push me back a few steps. Thanks to training with Vicky, I got my confidence back and I recently did a half marathon. I can hand on heart say I would not have been able to do it without Vicky. She has picked me up, kept me going, tailored things to adapt to my aches and pains, she has known when to push me and when to be kind and encourage. Her flexibility with timings around my shifting work has been great. Most of all, we have a good old natter, put the world to rights and it helps me ignore what my feet are doing!
