Achieve your best running...

with the help of a qualified running coach

TRAINING PLANS
Members are provided with individual training plans specific to their running goals and upcoming events.
MOTIVATION & FUN
Members help and support each other in a fun, friendly and encouraging environment.

"In running, it doesn't matter if you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say 'I have finished'."
          Fred Lebow, NY City Marathon Co-Founder

Why Come to Our Sessions?

We are a small friendly squad who support and encourage each other. The group is made up of a range of experience levels so whatever your ability you will fit in!

We run in the evenings, in the mornings, we get up early for events, we bring our kids along who often join in the fun, and sometimes our dogs too. We are social and casual but we motivate each other and I will make you work hard because I take your running goals seriously.

At the moment we are a small squad which means that you will never be overlooked as
I know and plan for your goals individually.


Session Structure
We don't just go for a run! (although we do that too). Sessions are aimed at helping you achieve your goals - to start running, to get faster, to run longer, to train for an event (5km, 10km, half or full marathon distances).

Sessions are structured to improve running techniques so include intervals, fartleks,
hill training and tempo runs.

I discuss your goals with you so we can work towards achieving them, I give you homework, and I encourage you to train outside strucuted sessions...all so you can achieve your best!


Qualified Coach
I am an Athletics Australia qualified Level 2 Advanced Recreational Running Coach who can assist you in reaching your next goal, whether it is to run your first 5km, improve your performance as a more experienced runner, or want to aim for a longer distance such as half or full marathon.


Cross Training
I am also a qualified personal trainer and pilates instructor with knowledge and experience to cross train you to help prevent injury. I am passionate about running safely and being able to run for a long time. For me it's not about pushing you beyond your limits - it's about pushing you as far as you can go to achieve success, and for you to be able to do so for as long as you want to. It's about running longevity, not push and burn.


Events
AYB Runners are encouraged to participate in a number of running events regularly throughout the year (although it's not mandatory and some of our runners prefer not to). For those who do, we set goals for these events and individual training plans are provided to each member according to their specific goal.

Some of the events we'll be doing this year include:

Warburton Fun Run
Tri Maroondah
Run 4 the Kids
Maroondah Trail Dam Run
Angela Taylor Memorial Run
Great Ocean Road
Salomon Trail Series
Run Melbourne
Medibank Melbourne Marathon
