ABOUT ME

I'm Vic, STOTT Pilates® instructor, Certified Running Technique Specialist with The Running School® and ultra runner! I started running in my mid thirties after practicing Pilates for 10 years, and couldn't believe the difference it made to my injury resilience and recovery. I've discovered it's the perfect partner for hours spent running on the trails or road, and combined with an efficient technique helps to ensure I can run for longer, and recover quicker too!

Runlates is all about working together to keep moving in whatever way works for you, feeling stronger and happier at the same time.  I'm passionate about supporting you to achieve your goals - from running longer distances to moving more comfortably day to day. If there's something you'd like to work towards, I'd love to have a chat and find out more.

I only started running again early May 2021 after not running for many years and thinking I couldn't again because of Osteoarthritis in both knees. I'm not as fast as I used to be, and I know I have to take it steady, slow and only do short distances. I also knew I needed to build up my strength. I didn't want to join a running group but I knew I needed soething to help. Vic's Tuesday evening group is perfect. She's so welcoming and reassured me that I wouldn't feel out of my depth. We do an hour of Pilates (with adaptations if required for the old knees!) and then a gentle run.  I'm always at the back but the group are so lovely I never feel that I'm out of my depth.  Vic will always check I'm ok, and the distance is perfect.  I've really noticed a difference in my ability, strength and stamina. Plus I've met some lovely people and we often end up giggling in the group.
