I'd already run a marathon before I started training with Filipp Nosov. While I was proud of my accomplishment, I did not come out of the process unscathed. I ended up hurting my knee badly and couldn't walk properly for a few weeks. I saw a trauma specialist who recommended that I completely stop running, which I just could not agree to. A different sports-medicine doctor advised me that I could go back to running if I fixed my technique. That was the point when I met Filipp. Within the first month of participating in his group lessons I could run again pain-free. Within four months I had set a new personal half-marathon record. I started enjoying running again and wasn't bothered by pain. Now I have completed 7 full marathons and am working towards the Comrades
competition. I highly recommend Filipp as a running trainer and conversationalist who has a lot to say about sport- and non-sport-related topics alike.
