Expert Talks

Our one hour expert talk will cover stress physiology and discuss the importance of Mindful Running for Stress Management. 



Karen offers remote coaching which is a monthly personalised service where you receive a new training programme every 4 weeks and a fortnightly call to discuss progress, performance and how things are going in general. This is a great option for those looking for a little more ‘hands on’ help with their training or have several events planned and want to periodise the whole year or season. Karen limits the number of athletes she offers this service to she likes to be familiar with the activities, progress and events of each athlete so she can offer the best and most specific coaching advice possible. Remote coaching with Karen currently costs £80 per month please get in touch if you are interested. 


In order to manage our physical and mental health we often add training to life stress in the hope that we will feel better. This often works in the short term BUT if we don't improve our lifestyle AND manage life stress at the same time, we'll soon find training plateaus or worse still we get ill or injured. WHY? Because we're simply adding training stress to life stress!! BUT when we invest in our health and lifestyle by making small but significant changes, our health and mood will improve meaning we don't need to place so much importance on our sport to 'feel better' or 'de-stress'. AND an added bonus is that we're in a better place to take advantage of training adaptations therefore make better progress on the run. You can have the best training plan in the world, but if you're not eating, sleeping or managing stress very well, then you're running the risk of burnout and overtraining.

Yoga for Runners

Emma is an incredibly talented Yoga teacher offering yoga classes in Hull and Richmond upon Thames in South West London. Emma has a very relatable approach to yoga for runners, being a runner herself she knows where the body may need more attention before or after a run. Em's approach is to encourage people who run and maybe haven't even considered yoga to take part in movements (shapes) that lower stress, enhance mood and ultimately improve performance during running AND recovery afterwards. Fancy trying YOGA for RUNNERS. Go to Em's website to find out more
