build your running confidence
With the right advice!
Most running advice is aimed at the whole of the running population and probably doesn’t apply to your specific needs right now.
It’s not that the coaches, gurus and online magazines are getting it wrong or giving bad advice, it’s just that their advice works for some people and not for others.
There comes a point in your running when you just get fed up of trying stuff and it not working, and your running then becomes a struggle and frustration instead of the enjoyable sport you really want to love.
While I won’t say that learning to run in a way where you can be quicker, go for longer, avoid injury and enjoy is easy. But, it’s nowhere near as hard as you think it is, or have experienced up until now.
There is zero reason why you can’t be a better runner; whether better means stronger, faster, longer, less ploddy or simply more enjoyable.
By following the principles of my 4 Pillars of Confident Running (start wth my FREE Run Strong Guide), you will build the foundation so you can put all that great advice into action and not only will it be easier, it will also stick and your running will change forever.
So who am I and why should you listen to me?
My name is Chris O’Brien and I have been exactly where you are now. I got sick and tired of trying to improve my running from what seemed like advanced techniques that were frustrating to learn and just didn’t hang around so I always went back to how I was. Fed up, I decided to do it my own way.
I took the best of what I could find, and simpified it – teaching myself to run better. I went from running 10k in 60 minutes to 38 minutes. I went from seeing the marathon as an Everest to climb to running it in 02:59:04. And the thing is, I don’t think that’s special at all – I believe that every runner has the ability to do that with the right system and a little bit of effort.
Oh, and I’m an England Athletics running Coach, a Z-Health Certified Practitioner – specialising in movement integration and specialist sports skill development. I’m also trained in a number of specialist areas that keep my unique take on running up to date and cutting edge.
