CUSTOM TRAINING PLAN FOR YOUR BIG RACE
Having a custom training plan is super important because most ‘cookie cutter’ training plans don’t work for everyone. The objective is to learn everything possible about the runner so on race day they’re ready to perform to the highest potential. The coach will look at training history, injury history, past performances, etc. and also consider what goal the runner might have in mind. With all of this information the perfect training will be created to help the runner achieve their top goal.
Not every runner chooses the right race…some don’t even have a race they prefer to run. So, one of the services is to help guide the runner to choose the right race. There are tons of factors to consider when choosing a race, like if the runner trying to run a fast time or if the runner can’t travel too far from home. The goal is to find that perfect match.
CONTACT THROUGH PHONE, TEXT, OR EMAIL
This important for both the coach and athlete because training will sometimes be adjusted. Things in life can happen, like getting sick or having to watch your child, and it’s almost impossible to follow a training to what’s exactly on the schedule with all of this happening. The schedule can also get adjusted depending on how the runner is feeling. Say the runner is too tired for their next ‘Quality Session’…moving days around would benefit the runner more than just pushing through training. Being able to communicate with the runner allows the coach to make these adjustments wherever they’re needed. Also, some runners could really use the mental motivation. It’s important that every runner is confident going into Quality Sessions and races. Depending on which plan the runner chooses contact will be through either phone, text, or email.
This is important because some runners don’t know their own ability. Some runners set goals too high, or even too low. The focus is to find the right goal for each runner. There are factors to consider when choosing a goal like previous performances, improvement in training, or course difficulty. We keep all this in mind when setting the right goal for the runner.
GEAR, SHOE, APPAREL SUGGESTIONS
Some runners have a hard time choosing what shoes, shirts, shorts, etc. to use for training and races. We don’t want any issues, like an injury to happen. For example…wearing the wrong shoe could be reason why an injury keeps happening. Stability shoes aren’t for everyone…just like a neutral shoe won’t work for everyone. Finding what works for each runner will help maximize each runners potential.
