Robyn’s Success At Queenstown Marathon

It seems my running destiny was determined the day I won a 3 month online training voucher with a bloke called Coach Ray, who helps train beginning and recreational athletes. I had always run for fun, but a long term iliotibial band problem had stopped me running much distance in the last 25 years. Luckily just before winning my Qwik Kiwi voucher, I had also found a fantastic physio who finally sorted out my knee issue. It seemed my running stars had aligned. When Ray asked me what my goals were, I told him that I would quite like to run the Queenstown marathon, and so the training began.

This session is great for runners and triathletes running events up to Marathon distance and longer.

How Jamie Took Over 2 Minutes Off His 5km Time In Only 4 Weeks

Jamie came to me wanting to improve his running and stay injury free for ultra-running events. he has a few goals lined up in the coming 12 months.

I’ve set up a structured programme for him that is going to progress him towards his goals. Like most busy people holding down a full time job and have a family that they need to spend time with he has struggled in the past with fitting his training in and then has ended up winging it on event day.
