Your Coach

Lindley Chambers

I have been running and taking part in events since 2002 when I ran my first London Marathon. Since then I have run quite a few Marathons and Ultramarathons (Ultra's)

I have completed races of up to 145miles and attempted others longer. I have run somewhere in the region of 50-70 events of Marathons or further distances.

We have 3 levels of Coaching available depending on your needs.


Basic Plan


  • We will provide a basic plan for up to 16 weeks before your target event, they have been written based on the event distance and target you wish to achieve. 
  • They don't take into account your current levels and work or time commitments. (For that we reccomend the next level up).
  • Once we send you the plan we have no more involvement in the plan and can't provide feedback or adjustment unless arranged for an additional fee.
  • Great if you just want a structured plan to follow and work a fairly normal Mon-Fri 9-5 job. 

Cost is £25


Custom Plan


  • Great for unusual working hours, shift patterns or time commitments. 
  • We have a phone or skype conversation about your goals and targets.
  • You provide a diary of work and time commitments and availability to train.
  • We write a bespoke plan fitting around your schedule to reach your target.
  • Once we send you the plan we have no more involvement in the plan and can't provide feedback or adjustment unless arranged for an additional fee.
  • (We reccomend a full coaching plan for fregular eedback and adjustment)
  • Again up to 16 weeks written up to your event.
  • Great if you are self motivate and just need a structured plan to fit around your life

Cost is £100


Full online Coaching Plan


  • Fully interactive coaching plan via the Training Peaks application
  • Plans written monthly and updated and adjusted as often as needed
  • Regular quick feedback through your Training Peaks (TP) online plan
  • Tracking of your fitness on the TP system
  • Annual Training plan created with target races and build up planned in advance
  • Monitoring of fitness, fatigue and form via TP.
  • Emails reminding you of your daily plan and in app notifications
  • Easy traffic light colour system so you can see instantly if you are hitting your targets
  • Your coach gets emails and notifications when you complete an activuty and can provide quick feedback and analysis. 
  • Great if you want to acheive your targets and get regular interaction with your coach to ensure your plan is always on target to achieve your goal.
