What people think of us

I would like to give you some feedback about the Run Technique Class that you held on Sunday 15th April and I apologise for the delay in replying to you.

I thought that the class that you and Gail held was fantastic! 

From the outset of the class, you put everyone at ease with humour and by stating that everyone was starting at the same level.  We weren't expected to have any prior knowledge and there was no jargon to get to grasps with, just clear friendly, explanations of what you expected to achieve.

You obviously put a lot of effort into the preparation of the class and this really showed through. You used a structured and logical approach which really made sense and I found that you repeating key points (posture, gravity, leaning etc) helped me to focus. Gail's demonstrations, firstly greatly exaggerated, then slowly and precisely and then at full speed, reinforced all the points that you made.

You two make a brilliant teaching team!

 I learnt so much in an hour and a half with you two and this has shown through in my running. I have noticed less jarring in my knees since changing to forefoot strike and I my times are getting better; which is incredible in the first week! This is completely down to your teaching. The enthusiasm shown by you and Gail was infectious and shone throughout the class. Thank you both very much for the time and effort that you put into this class.

I would appreciate it if you would send me a copy of the "crib sheet" and I will come to you for more lessons, as well as encouraging other runners that I know.

Thank you both again.
