Thanks for guiding me through again Pat – it was quite an adjustment this year and thanks for flexing up the program as I worked through the motivation and injury issues. I have enjoyed your programs and emails to keep me motivated over the past several years and this is probably my last although I will never say never and if I get my mojo back and start chasing improved 10k or 5 k times I will be in touch.

“I am very grateful for your support through the entire training program. The benefit of which was experienced on the start line where I wasn’t concerned about finishing the race but instead was focused on how I would run it. I was calm and excited for what lay ahead. This was due to the preparation which was guided by yourself. My sincerest thanks and I now look forward with enthusiasm to the next challenge, whatever it may be.”

Marcus Trant

“Pat’s tailored marathon training plan from first enquiry to successfully achieving my goal was exceptional. It was realistic but at the same time challenging and it kept you accountable. Pat’s timely and personal feedback with encouragement was always appreciated. I would recommend a plan devised by Pat to anyone who wants to achieve a running goal whilst at the same time enjoying the journey, thanks again Pat.”
