Steph Twell is an example of how a runner should progress. Stephanie began at the 800m, and moved up to 1,500m, running 2:02.58 in 2016 and 4:02.54 in 2010 (1,500m). Seems that, longer the distance, better that she has done, with five British titles at 5000m outdoors!
This will be Steph’s second marathon. She debuted in 2:30.14 in Valencia in December 2018.
She loves road racing and just raved about the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, which she finished 8th in a PB of 52:58 on 7 April 2019.
Stephanie still has the need for speed and desire with cross country. She hopes to get in some cross country racing after recovering from what she hopes is a good second effort.
A fine cross country running, Stephanie Twell has moved mileage from 65-70 miles a week to 85-95 miles, adding little by little and analyzing session by session. Self coached for the past six months, since she stopped working with Geoff Wightman, Twell seems to enjoy the freedom of coaching ones self. Prone to analysis, Stephanie Twell relies on discussions with a physio and her husband, a medical doctor, who, as a 2:19 marathoner, will be pacing her in Frankfurt.
