Coach Niki

Niki Andrews

Q.When did you join the club?

A. 2009.

Q. Why did you join the club?

A. I had entered the London marathon through my previous club and, as they didn’t do much road running, it was suggested that I train with FVS on Sunday mornings.Ā I then got a bit addicted and gave up the track for road running.

Q. Why did you join the coaching team?

A. I’ve been a Level 2 jumps coach since I was 18 as part of myĀ previous club. After helping out informally a couple of timesĀ for FVSĀ at the track I decided that I may as well see if my skills were transferable to road runs… this is yet to be proven!

Q.What are you hoping to do through your involvement in the coaching team?

A. I hope to get myself into group 4 on a Tuesday and drag some others from group 3 along with me (you have been warned!) Also just be an extra person around to ask forĀ advice on general running (nothing too specific please!)

Q. When do we typically see you at training?

A. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays although if you ask me nicely I will come to the track on a Saturday when it’s sunny!

Q. What are your aimsĀ in 2012 for your running and/or coaching?

A. Running – sub 1.40 half marathon, try to compete in as many of the MWL as possible,

Coaching – get more ladies in the cross country team next year – andĀ the teamĀ running them well!

Q. Tell us something about you that other Spartans will not know!

A. IĀ was a SEAA high jump silver medallist and East of England record holder (indoors)
