Welcome to the Women’s Running Workshop. This is the first in a new series of podcasts for beginner runners. In our first episode I have a chat with Holly, our Women’s Running digital editor. She’s eyeing up the virtual Bath Half in spring 2021, and I want to help her get there. So we got together to talk about her training, to figure out where she thinks she is running-wise, and to chat about what she can do in the next few weeks to get her fitness levels up. This is the perfect opportunity to join in with us if you’re starting to run, or you’re getting back into it. Over the next few episodes I’ll be coaching Holly every fortnight to a comfortable 5K, then to her first 10K, and up to the half marathon in March. We will discuss an easy running schedule, some strength and conditioning moves she can do at home, and some simple drills. Listen in to the end, and I’ll give you a little bit of running homework too – don’t worry, I promise it’s easy, it’s for all abilities, and it doesn’t matter if you’re not quite where Holly is right now. Give it a go, and let me know how you get on. Next episode, we’re talking technical running, so tune in then for an update from Holly, and to get your next batch of running homework!

Email me with your questions.

And find out how to prepare for your first run.
