Your instructor: Lucy

Hello, my name is Lucy and I was once a Run with Tina beginner! In 2014, I did Running Made Easy in the Phoenix Park and I enjoyed it so much, I kept up my running practice and did the next level, Keep Running course. I had fabulous support from the instructors and loved the weekly meet-ups.

Roll on a few years, work and family life took over and I was exercising less and less. In early 2020, unfortunately I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I spent that year having treatment. At the start of 2021, with all my cancer treatment finished and a clean bill of health, I focussed on ‘building myself’ back up. I started with some yoga and over time I began to do some strength training and daily long walks.

The benefits of regular exercise are huge for everyone, especially people recovering from illness. With that in mind I decided on a career change and I started a fitness course. I am now a REPS Ireland qualified Fitness Instructor and will gain my REPS Ireland Personal Trainer qualification in March 2023. I am delighted to be working on Run with Tina, back where my fitness journey began.

Frequently Asked Questions

I had a baby recently, can I take part in this course?

You should wait a minimum of 12 weeks after natural birth and 6 months after a c-section before starting running. Walking is a great, safe way to start after pregnancy - as long as you have the all clear to exercise from your doctor, you can start walking. We recommend before taking up running, you do some post-natal pilates to build up your core strength and stability in order to prevent lower back and hip pain/injuries (which are common postnatally).

Can I take this course while pregnant?

No. Our classes are not suitable during pregnancy.

I suffer from shin splints or another injury/ache, can I join?

If you already suffer with shin splints or any other injury/ache or pain, it is advisable to take care of that first as running is only going to make it worse. The best thing to do is go to a physio for advice and treatment. After an injury, it's best to start slowly to avoid re-injury so we recommend you start with WalkFit

I am overweight, can I join?

Yes of course!! You can join Running Made Easy as long as you are healthy, have no injuries and your doctor is happy for you to do weight bearing exercise. If weight bearing exercise is too much for your joints, it's best to start with WalkFit. 

What is your refund policy?

For full refund, you must cancel 24hrs before your course starts. No refunds will be given once your course has commenced. All online product purchases are final.
