What if I’m not fit enough? That is the point of this group- to take that worry away- this is a group for non-runners starting off. Being unfit is a perfect way to start. The key is that I keep the pace slow and steady for the entire 12 weeks and the group stays together. No one will ever be left at the back or feeling like they can’t keep up.
What length are the sessions? All sessions start with a 5 min warm up walk and end with stretches. For the first half of programme sessions are a mix of walking & jogging. The first session is more walking than anything else. No sessions last longer than an hour over the 12 weeks.
What do I need to wear or bring? Just clothes that are comfy to jog in and runners, after a few weeks you may decide to be fitted for runners. Penney’s have great comfy leggings, so you don't need to break the bank! You won’t need water but do bring a drink if you’d like. Oh, and a supportive bra!
What happens if I miss a week or two? Everyone receives their own copy of the plan, so you can follow the sessions- amazingly some people have even run on their holidays much to their own surprise!!It requires a commitment of 3 sessions a week - one you do with me and the group the other two at a time that suits you alone or with friends/other members. These short sessions are your “me" time and you'll soon start looking forward to them!
Can we contact you in between sessions? Yes, there is a private RUNCLUB FB group that you can join. It’s a great place to ask questions because everyone benefits from the answer- if your query is private PM me and I will get back to you within 24 hours Monday to Friday. If you need me, please, please get in touch because I can only help if I know you need it.
Where can I complete my own sessions? Anywhere you would like. The track at Shamrocks is ideal, flat always open and you can use it any time.
How do I time my sessions? You will receive a breakdown of sessions that can be timed with a stopwatch, but there are also phone apps -Gym boss & Seconds Pro -that you can enter in timings beforehand and lots of people have found these useful.
I’m still so nervous about starting, anything I can do about that. Yes, please don’t worry. I have suffered from anxiety on and off throughout my life and know how powerful it can be but if you can trust me, I promise you will be glad you did. Everyone is nervous and has the voice of fear saying, “you won’t be good enough”/ “you will be too slow/too unfit/ too overweight or too old. Over the next 12 weeks that voice is going to get a lot quieter! This is about focusing on all the positives, taking the first step to sign up is HUGE- Well done. You can congratulate yourself now before even starting.
Looking forward to meeting you and getting started.

"I joined Run Club approaching my 40th birthday having come through a difficult period in my life and my fitness levels were non existent- I was never sporty. I can honestly say it was the best thing I've ever done. It boosted my confidence and I now do things for myself" - Sinead
"I delayed starting Run Club for years because I was so nervous. I was sure I'd be the worst and wanted to cancel. But I showed up and instantly felt at ease. Hannah Lilly really is telling the truth when she says she'll look after you." - Lorraine
