Coaching Tips

1 - Running Safely

The first of our series of ‘Coaching Tips’ comes from coach Lee Pickering. Passionate about personal safety whilst out running, Lee gives us some valuable advice to enjoy some stress and drama-free running!

When going out running, it is quite easy to just throw on a t-shirt, pair of shorts and some trainers and get going. But how many people think about if they can be seen? Or if someone knows where they are going, and how long for?


2 - Training plans on Garmin Connect

As it’s now time to start training for Autumn marathons, it is important that each runner chooses a training plan that suits their individual ability and needs. Did you know that if you use a Garmin Watch, you have access to a variety of training plans, catering for all types of runners?

To access these plans, you will need to log in to the desktop version of the Garmin Connect website, at the following URL: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/training-plan . Garmin has created 31 training plans, from 5ks to marathons, from heart rate-based training to pace based plans. Depending on type of plan and the watch being used, you may also be able to download the plans directly to your device.
