" Finding Ged has been the been the best thing I could have done in recent months, I have run since I left school, entering races and always winning prizes with little training or effort. Now in my 40's , two children later and the commitment that that takes, I was probably not fit enough to
enter a half marathon last year but I went in with the same blaze attitude. After 9 miles my left calf was agony and I hobbled to the end.
This really stopped me in my tracks, from then on I could not run for 20 minutes without unbearable pain in my calf. I went to see osteopaths and physiotherapists but no one could help, I felt frustrated and thought that perhaps my running days were over. That is a daunting thought. So I decided to cycle and during 5 days cycled from Lands End to Hereford......but I still wanted to run..to run in the countryside to feel free. I began to think that perhaps I was too old.
Feeling dejected I looked for a personal trainer...could not believe I was doing so..that's what celebrities did not me!!
But I was wrong......Whatever you want to achieve Ged will get you there.....When I first phoned him I stressed how bad my calf was and doubted that he would be able to help.....Little by little I started to realise that I was getting stronger and was having no pain, I thought as time went on the old pain and frustration would return, but no!
Ged managed to increase my fitness levels without re- igniting the injury!!
Remember that half marathon ?.. well I ran it again. in March this year..with my head held high, no injuries!!!! I have also started circuit training again after feeling that perhaps I was too old...Ged has given me so much confidence and belief in my self and I keep entering races and loving them..
I also had back pain which was being aggravated by lots of driving, after a couple of osteopath sessions it was still uncomfortable, Ged suggested a massage , I could not believe the difference, it felt fantastic and has remained so for weeks now.
Ged is a rare soul, I thank him from the bottom of my heart. Our training sessions have not only pushed me but have been great fun, never a dull moment. Ged thinks outside the box, completely and utterly!!
Thank you Ged !!!! "
