COACHING & TRAINING
MY COACHING APPROACH
Coaching distance runners is as much an art as it is science. Each runner is unique in their ability to adapt, both physically and psychologically to different training loads and modalities. Consequently, each runner responds uniquely to any given workout. I recognize that the very same uniqueness each runner exhibits in training should also relate to the all-important post-workout recovery protocols and timeframes. This is especially true and critical for older adult runners and beginners. Training for a runner, at whatever level, is a dynamic and ever changing process, requiring adaptations on the part of both athlete and coach alike. Again, its not just about the miles.
There is no optimal formula, shortcut, or secret program that works for all runners. This is where the “art” comes into play, oftentimes with some degree of trial and error necessary to discover what does or doesn’t work for you. This is why a trusting, honest, and collaborative coaching style is so important to your long-term progress and success. Open, two-way feedback and regular communication between coach and runner is the cornerstone of my coaching. As a coach, it’s not only important for me to ask a lot of questions, but also to listen carefully to the answers as well as your questions. I am also a strong believer in runners becoming students of their sport, through encouragement and education.
