COACH PROFILE - WAYNE
Wayne - RMPAC Running Coach
I have been a member of the club since 2004 but have been running since Junior School.  I ran at the South West meeting at the Marsh for a couple of years, doing the 60m Hurdles, 4X100m relay and long jump.  At secondary school I was in the athletics team, as well as football and rugby so I guess I’ve always been quite sporty (and competitive – Nicola will tell you I still am – even against our 3 boys!!)

I have a Level 2 English Athletics qualification. I actually started coaching juniors and took the Level 1 and 2 courses. It taught me how to break down athletic events (not just running) and coach them.  For the Level 2 I had to pick one of the four disciplines: sprints, endurance, jumps or throws.  I chose sprinting and a year or so later went back and did the endurance module. At club meetings all the coaches take it in turns to coach the different groups and I enjoy coaching all the different levels for different reasons

I have run all sorts of different races at various distances, from 5km to full marathon, it’s difficult to say what my favourite distance is, they all have their own challenges; for instance my favourite 10 miles was the 2014 Portland 10 when I achieved a new personal best.  The Grizzly (20 miles) is just great fun and the London Marathon is an experience you have to do at least once!

I like running in the summer, not so much in the wind and rain!  The camaraderie the club has on training nights and when we travel together to races is second to none.  I guess I could say I like hearing Bill say “flattest course ever” even when I know it’s not- he knows we’ll rib him over it!

As well as writing the club newsletter, Outside of running, I play the tenor saxophone and have just been asked to help out with Portland Sea Cadet band.  Oh, and you’ll always find me with at least one book on the go.
