"I can’t believe the 10km program is already over!! I have loved the HerTrails holistic approach to the program and I am impressed with how much I improved within the 8 weeks. I ended up doing a 12km play day on Saturday as I am doing Run the Rock (13.5km) in three weeks time. I haven’t had any knee pain throughout the whole program and I’m very grateful for the ongoing support from not only the HerTrails team but all of you amazing ladies that did this adventure with me. I had a great last week and my goal is to do the 21.1km program in the lead up to the Bondi to Manly Ultra relay in October."
"I tackled my 10km at the John Wayne True Grit race in Pioneertown, CA, last Saturday, an incredible adventure in the Sawtooth mountains. The challenging terrain, filled with rocks, sand, water crossings, and altitudes over 4000 feet, put me to the test. Despite the unexpected difficulty of the course, I noticed a significant improvement in my strength, especially in my legs and hips. I had some difficulty with the high altitude and sandy terrain, yet, I completed the race with a better time than expected. The Her Trails 10km program played a critical role in my preparation, and I truly believe it was instrumental in my success on race day. I was ready and stronger than ever, and for that, I am incredibly grateful."
Can’t believe our program is almost at an end 😮
Enjoyed my long run at the lake trail today. Was proud of myself- I didn’t walk this time! Slow and steady! Had a dip afterwards, and I even saw a Shingleback on the way home- really rare to find around our area. Was absolutely stoked!
"I ended up doing another play day on Saturday and ran 10km on the trails. There was a lot of mud, creek crossings and tree roots to contend with, but so happy I kept my feet rubber side down. I’m steadily becoming more confident on technical terrain and sure coach Bec’s strength and stability workouts have saved me from a fall or 2 🙏 I’ve loved that this program has kickstarted my running journey again and is propelling me forward injury free. Recovery today was cold water soak in a rainforest creek to soothe sore muscles before putting on a heavier pack next week in preparation for the Grampians Peak Trail."
"Wow, the Her Trails 10km program was great to be a part of! I've always been somewhat fit but would never feel comfortable running a straight 10km. I would always push too hard, have no control of my running pace and end up burning out. After the 8 weeks I can now comfortably run 10km with ease, controlled pace and I feel great post run. Highly recommend 👍"
