TRAIN FOR YOUR MARATHON

"Training for a Marathon it's not just about running!"
Helen, The Cheesecake Runner

If you've always secretly wanted to run a marathon, but never had the nerve to get going, this is your lucky year ... 

Marathon Club Hub is here

to guide you on your marathon training journey.

Marathon Club Hub is my virtual coaching programme for first and next time marathoners and will support and give you all the critical information and advice you need to prepare to run your marathon.

I had coaching with Helen after getting a place for VLM19. I’m new to running and found everything I Googled confusing. I was really anxious as I’d never ran a marathon before. 

 

I was confused about running plans, pace, what food I should be eating, warming up, cooling down, pretty much everything!  Helen went through it all with me.  

 

Helen put me at ease, translated all of the running jargon for me and spent time reassuring me.  What Helen doesn’t know about running isn’t worth knowing!

 

Instead of feeling stressed and anxious, I’m now excited and feel confident in my plan and training.

 

If you’re thinking of working with Helen, just do it, you won’t regret it!

Thank you so much Cheesecake Runner! x

EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR TRAINING

"Eating a balanced diet is critical to overall health and wellbeing and to support your training"
Helen, The Cheesecake Runner

Nothing has a greater impact on your running than how you nourish and feed your body.  Good nutrition, having a balanced diet and a training programme that works for you, is critical to your running success as well as your overall health, fitness and wellbeing.  

I don't believe in fad diets or training quick fixes.  My approach is to give you a training plan coupled with a balanced healthy diet that works for you, with your busy lifestyle and helps you to achieve your running, health and fitness goals.

When I started working with Helen (The Cheesecake Runner) I had already run a few marathons, but I was bad with fuelling.  My pace was getting slower I never had enough energy and whilst many people I knew had lost weight running, all I’d done was put it on!

 

I was anti-carb and had got caught up thinking I needed more protein in my diet. Helen explained this wasn’t going to give me energy for my running!  

 

Helen kept a food diary to monitor my macros and keep on track - and it works!  Understanding how ‘nutrient free calories’ were hindering my progress really helped me make better decisions.  I was eating good food, and more of it, meaning I wasn’t looking for a sugar rush for energy.

 

Working with Helen I lost about 4lb and I was eating more food than ever and in my next marathon I took 54 min off my previous time!

"I'm passionate about helping you achieve your running goals"  Helen x

MEET THE CHEESECAKE RUNNER

A few years back I was over- stressed, over-worked and over-weight.  I had a glamorous but demanding corporate job working with clients all over the world.  But I was unfit, unhealthy and unhappy.

I turned my life around and made health, fitness and my general wellbeing my priority.  I started to eat sensibly, exercise regularly and took up running.

I'm now a nutrition coach and run marathons ... for fun!

I changed my life for ever! 

If you're up for it I can help you change yours too!

You Got This!!!

I want to thank you for the advice and support you’ve given me around nutrition for my marathon training.  Over the past 2 weeks I've lost 3lb in weight (so that's motivating) but more importantly I'm not feeling any where near as hungry. Loving eating carbs again, after years of thinking they were the enemy. Your advice has made me more aware of what I'm eating and why and also demonstrated to me that I need to plan what I’m eating better!

I have a busy job and exercise most days, often getting home very late.  Before I started working with Helen I had a tendency to snack on whatever was in the fridge when I got in.  I now understand the importance of a balanced diet for my training.  I’ve been ordering a weekly veg and meat box and so we worked together planning healthy meals according to what’s been ordered.  Over 8 weeks I’ve lost 5kg, which helped me knock 30 minutes off my half marathon PB.  I’m determined to keep going, now I know what I should be eating and how to plan and prepare meals around my busy life.
