The key to your running transformation is...

Working smarter, not harder*

*because you deserve allll the naps.


You’ve really put in the work, haven’t you?

You’ve laced up your running shoes day after day, week after week. You’ve smashed some major goals already, and you’re ready to take the next step in your running journey.

There are few people out there who share your grit, resilience, and ability to turn any semi-undisturbed 30-minute increment into a solid workout.

But… lately, you’ve been feeling like you’ve hit a bit of a wall with your running routine.

Could there be an easier way to hit your next PB?

Hermione: “Yes — of course — but there’s no wood!”

Here's what I want you to know....

More running does not always equal better results.

Sometimes you need to use a little magic.

Or rethink the way you’re structuring your workouts.

Or watch a few YouTube videos to make sure your running form is on point.

We already know that you’re capable of going the distance…

But what if that’s not the answer?

Here are some tips for working smarter, not harder.

1. Focus on your form

There are so many things even experienced runners forget to pay attention to that could dramatically improve their results (as well as lower the risk of injury).

For example, next time you head out for a run, pay close attention to your posture.

Imagine someone pulling a string up through your head. (Yes, really.)

Keep your shoulders low and loose, and your back comfortably straight.

Feels better, yeah?

Now go smash that PB, you crazy cardio cat.

2. Mix up your workouts

Is interval training a regular part of your routine?

What about strength training? (Gotta keep that core in shape!)

If you feel like you’ve hit a wall with your regular runs, it might be time to mix up your routine and add some extra workouts into the mix.

Don’t overdo it though.

Start with one interval workout per week and see how you feel first.

3. Find your next-level community

No, not one of those Facebook groups where you ask a question only to get zero replies (and MAYBE a like or two).

A REAL community, where everyone shares their struggles, their wins, and their vulnerabilities freely so that they can all grow together.

(P.S. I’ve got one in my RUN with Turia program. We call ourselves the Beet Sisters – but you’ll have to join us to find out why.)

Remember: improvement isn’t linear.

People assume that when they work at something every day, they’ll get a bit better every day too.

But it doesn’t work like that.

Improvement isn’t linear.

So, if you’re expecting that with every run you do, you will get better and better… Stop.

That’s not gonna happen! You could hit a PB one day, and have the world’s crappest run the next.

What matters is consistency. And you’ve already got that one in the bag.

So put on those running shoes, friend.

But wait… Who the heck am I, and how did I figure this all out?

Short answer? The hard way.

While competing in a 100km ultra-marathon in the Australian outback in 2011, I encountered an out-of-control grassfire. Trapped by the flames, I suffered burns to 65% of my body.

Surviving against overwhelming odds, I’ve since rebuilt my life and defied every expectation placed on me.

I’ve written three best-selling books, coached over 40,000 people in my digital courses, shared a stage with Tony Robbins, competed in the Ironman World Championships, sailed a boat around French Polynesia, walked the Kokoda Trek, met some amazing people and I’ve grown a team and a business that I’m truly proud of.

And… I’ve done quite a few of those things while being a Mum, and scheduling my runs and speaking gigs alike around the needs of my family.

If I can do it, you can, too. I believe in you.

Feeling inspired to lace up your running shoes?

You may be interested to know that my RUN with Turia program is opening up soon.

It’s a fun, flexible, and BS-free running program for Mums (of teens, toddlers, or even corgis).

I’m gonna keep you in the loop with more info, OK?

Pssst! I made you something!

A Spotify playlist to help you get out the door and into the zone before someone can ask “Mum, can I come running with you?”

OK, so you still don’t think you’re a “runner”?

That’s what these legends thought too.
