New Energy Running Group is a mixed ability group open to all, regardless of age, running experience or
level of fitness. Sessions are supportive and fun and the aim is to build up running stamina and strength
over the weeks, enabling every runner to improve and enjoy their running. Everybody is welcome to come along,
although we'd recommend that you are comfortable with running 5k to get the most out of it.
The weekly sessions start and finish at the gym and are held outdoors, exploring the streets and trails of Winchester.
They are a mix of running/walking with intervals, hills and speed work and are planned to challenge at every level.
If you're a member then it's already included in your membership, if you're a non-member then you pay £5 on the day.
Need a little extra feedback on your running or some extra encouragement?
One-on-one sessions will be personalised to you, your level and your goal.
So whether you’re just starting out or want a little more support working towards a race, I can help with that.
I work both within the gym and outdoors and the key to all sessions
is to sustain interest to encourage you to achieve your goal.
After our initial chat about your training background and aims, we will agree a time and a place to meet up for your first session.
Your session will be designed to help you meet your long-term goal and will usually include running drills, interval training,
stretches and some strength exercises. Guided runs are also a good option if you’re marathon training and finding
it hard to motivate yourself on the longer runs or need new routes.
The number of sessions are up to you.
A comprehensive running analysis, our top to toe run technique assessment is designed to deliver the maximum impact on your running
in the minimum time possible. I will lead you through a detailed running technique assessment, and guide you through the stretches,
training routines and drills that can help you improve your running, whatever your starting point.
You’ll receive expert advice, 100% tailored to you, and all summarised in a personalised written report. The technique assessment is
suitable for runners of all levels; ensuring beginners get off on the right foot, and helping more experienced athletes find those
all important technique tweaks.
The assessment consists of:
How to warm-up correctly to maximise performance and minimise injury risk
How to cool-down correctly to fast-track recovery and minimise soreness
Strength and conditioning exercises to boost performance
Advice on the sort of gym classes you can take at NEF to develop your strength and flexibility and complement your running.
Online Running Coaching and Training Plans
Tell me your goals and I’ll help you to stay on track and make them happen.
This option is perfect for anyone working towards a goal race who wants a little more support and tailored training advice.
If you’ve tried following an off-the-shelf training plan in the past and found you have trouble sticking to it, or you have a lifestyle
that means regular training sessions are difficult to fit in, this option is perfect for you.
With online coaching, we’ll be in contact every week. You’ll tell me how your sessions have gone and I’ll adjust your training plans accordingly.
We’ll have an initial meeting face to face or via email where you’ll tell me your goal and I’ll find out about your running and training history.
This will give me a good idea of you as a runner, how you like to train, and how often.
Setting a challenging but realistic goal is the next step and then we plan on how to get you there.
Each week I’ll email you your training for the next seven days and, based on how your training is going, I’ll adapt your plan as the weeks progress. I’ll also be on hand to answer any questions you have, or for you to just share your experiences.
"I had never done any kind of running before I met Clare. Overweight and not that fit it wasn't something I thought I'd be able to do. Clare took me to the park, did a warm up and started showing me what Chi Running was all about. By the end of that first session my technique had gone from random and appalling to quite tidy and I really enjoyed myself. After the second session I started to really want to run more and keep up the routine Clare had taught me. As a result of Clare's efforts I've really fallen in love with running and do it four times a week now. Clare is an excellent coach and a really lovely person to learn with."
