SV are very proud to introduce our new Sponsored Athlete Tom Stevens!
Tom is an incredible runner, constantly pushing himself to achieve his goals and we are overjoyed to be working with such an amazing athlete. Welcome Tom!
I first approached SV Sports Therapy after not being able to shake a recurring hamstring injury. After my initial assessment with Fleur we worked on a rehabilitation program of massage, strength training and stretching exercises. I am happy to say that the care and understanding shown has been brilliant, and after working through the program the hamstring issue that had plagued me for some time is gone. I really do feel that working with Fleur has helped me improve my training sessions and has also benefited me mentally, knowing that on race day we have worked together to iron out any niggles before they potentially become a bigger issue.
I started running roughly 2 years ago with the help of a dedicated running coach, after being inspired by some ultra running specific documentaries that I stumbled upon one evening.
The speed of running on pavements never really appealed to me but cross country and trail running did. I moved up from trail half marathon to full trail marathon completing my 1st 100k ultra event last year.
This year I competed in a 42mile event finishing in 6th place. I have a 64 mile event in August with a 44mile event at the end of the year. I already have a number of target events and distances in mind for the future with my 1st race of 2022 booked in May that is 103miles!
The sense of accomplishment at the end of a long training run or event is worth the long lonely mileage that inspires me to keep pushing further.
