So you are registered for a key race! You’re looking to be ready – maybe achieve a PR. If a marathon perhaps to qualify for Boston. Or regardless of the distance to prove to yourself you can achieve this goal. This service level is geared to help you get there!
For the Race Preparation Service level, clients receive regular in-person and virtual contact with the coach. A runner’s Race Preparation Plan (RPP) is developed together and includes four sections:
- Client Profile and Background – Biographical information, athletic and running history, running shoe preferences, results of a gait analysis, and baseline weight.
- Your Race Goal: Date and time goal of the target race, which should be a stretch but achievable goal. This goal will drive the training schedule.
- Overall Training Plan. Working backwards from your race date, the plan includes initial training targets and times for interim races as well as exercises and running equivalents (REQs) to perform.
- Concluding Notes. Framing the challenge with final comments and caveats.
In addition to the RPP, the Race Preparation Service level generally involves:
- An initial in-person session to discuss history, goals, and overall training approach. Go for a short run and perform a gait assessment.
- Follow-up sessions at a local gym/pool. Demonstrate recommended strength and flexibility exercises, running equivalents (REQs), and form drills.
- Rolling four-week daily training plan updated every two weeks jointly by client and coach.
- Check-ins by text, email, or phone
