After many years of trying to improve run technique and dealing with recurring running injuries and getting nowhere I found out about Keith's run technique sessions and booked in. It was the best thing I have ever done for my running. The session was enlightening and Keith is an inspiring and exceptional teacher. He has a unique ability to break down the running stride and explain what you are doing, the effect it has on the body and how to transform it to run with natural good form. After just a few weeks of practicing the new technique I am already seeing big improvements in speed with the same effort and feeling much more comfortable running. Keith also recommended Heidi Jones -The runner's podiatrist. With a combination of Keith's expertise in run coaching and Heidi's specialist advice on running specific strengthening exercises, the ongoing ankle problems that I have had for years have disappeared in a few weeks and I am running faster than I ever have and it is only the beginning. Excited about what lies ahead. Thank you Keith and Heidi

The session with Keith was a real eye opener for me as I have been running all my life but had never really thought about good form which I now realise is the most important aspect of running if you wish to stay injury free. I found Keith to be very friendly and articulate in his explanations with a natural unforced enthusiasm The session is a real investment that you will be able to use for the rest of your running life. Cheers Keith.

Keiths true colours came out in me yesterday. For three years I have been unable to break 64.5 Minutes on the City to Surf track. This year I managed to hit 60 Minutes by simply adopting the techniques that Keith taught me. I am not necessarily fitter, just stronger with better technique that got me that time. Next up Half Marathon... Thanks Keith

Keith's blog

I started this blog in the run up to the World Masters' Athletics games in Sacramento July 2011.

I hope it makes interesting reading ...

You will find the blog here

The blog was just for the WMA games so is no longer being updated but I hope some people will find my thoughts and experiences interesting and perhaps helpful in preparation for their own races.

2016
By request I have restarted the blog as I attempt the 60+ world records.
