Personalised training plans
You will get a personalised training programme in Training peaks every week which will be tailored to your specific requirements. You tell me when you can train, how long for and what your goals are, and I then use that information to create a plan that I believe will give you the best chance of success. We will communicate as much or little as you need, because for coaching to be successful it needs to be a partnership and that can only be achieved through honest feedback.
Set training plans
If you are looking for a fully written training plan for a specific event or situation I can provide you a full plan in training peaks, which you then follow but without additional input from me
I use a science based approach, that utilises the current peer reviewed literature to develop a long term plan to achieve your goals, whilst listening to your individual needs.
Working with Dave has been so rewarding. Before I was coached by him I was stuck and didn’t seem to be progressing. With some useful insights I have been able to focus on specific goals, and realise where I am strongest. Dave is is so flexible and has been able to work around my busy life, 3 children, a demanding job and despite only being able to average 3 runs a week on average I was able to complete my first ultra thanks to his expertise and support. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dave as a coach. Whatever your running goals, he’s your man.
I’ve always enjoyed running as a recreational sport and never ever considered competing in a race until I met Dave. He opened up a whole world of trail running, bog moor leaping and routes off the beaten path which encouraged me to want to get into the trail race scene.
His guidance and infectious determination helped me win races and see some of the most beautiful places in Europe. This is largely because he is my coach as well as my partner, he built my training plan around my specific races and helps me to understand the training that suits my strengths and weaknesses (hill reps )
I wouldn’t blame you if you think me biased but if he wasn’t a patient and knowledgeable coach I would have fired him a long time ago

For a few months I would get small bouts of sciatica pain radiating from my left buttock down my left leg and if it was a particularly bad day right down into my foot. These episodes wouldn’t last longer then a run or two or a week and I would always just keep training, just… Continue reading The injury process
