I have been running under Pat\’s mentoring for a few months now and the result have been amazing. I have already taken 1 minute off my 10km PB and I am confident I can PB the half and full marathon distances this year. I joined his program after constantly sustaining injuries when my mileage exceeded 50km a week. Pat completely transformed my approach to training and recovery and I have since been able to run 70km+ per week without any issues. Pat takes a very tailored approach to training and, unlike other online coaches I\’ve used, he uses my results and data to see what works best for me. The best value for money for any weekend warrior who wants to maintain long term, injury free, running success!

On a ranking of 1-5, I would give Pat a 6. I had ran one marathon previously – a horror experience – and I was determined to prepare properly this time around. Pat set me a clear, achievable program and checked in regularly with encouragement and good advice. His plan worked ! .I shaved 36 minutes off the previous time. I can’t recommend this service highly enough.

Signing up to Pat Carroll online coaching was the best running decision I’ve ever made. I’ve always wanted to run sub 3 hours but never really knew if I could, or how. Pat knew exactly how to get me there and his program worked perfectly resulting in 2:59:31 at the Gold Coast Marathon in 2019! Pat’s a great guy and a great coach, realistic and extremely supportive. Anyone who wants to get to the next level in their running should talk to Pat.
