Run Coaching

Whether your goal is to complete your first 5k, or you are trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon, the first step is finding a coach and a training plan that you can trust. Our team's coaches are among the most accomplished coaches in the industry. But don't be intimidated, they have experience working with runners of all ability levels. Our coaches learn about you, then create a training schedule that balances consistency of training with the stresses from your everyday life. Their priority is getting you to the starting line healthy and prepared, all while making sure that the journey is equally as rewarding as the finish.

What is included?

Our coaches will get to know each new athlete through an athlete questionnaire, initial conversations, and analysis of past training and racing data.

Season Planning & Daily Workout Scheduling
A long term periodization plan will be shared with each athlete. It will provide the athlete with information on how fitness will be built throughout the season. It outlines volume and intensity benchmarks for each week in a cycle. Our coaches will then create daily workouts that satisfy the goals for each week, and they will upload those workouts into each athlete's Training Peaks account.

Mobility, Flexibility and Strength
Keeping each athlete injury-free is always a priority. In addition to endurance building workouts, our coaches are also able to prescribe sessions that increase mobility and flexibility, as well as building sport specific strength.

Heart Rate Testing & Analysis
Initially, our coaches set very specific heart rate zones based on testing. Throughout the season, they analyze each athlete's heart rate data from workouts and races. They then update heart rate zones as necessary.

Race Pacing Plans
Our coaches give specific pacing instructions for each race on an athlete's schedule. All pacing plans are based off heart rate and pace (if applicable). Our coaches leave nothing to chance on race day!

Unlimited Communication & Rescheduling
There are no restrictions placed on the amount of communication, or type of communication, that an athlete may have with his/her coach. Our clients dictate what communication style works best for them. Daily workouts and/or season plans can be changed at any time at the athlete's request.

Training & Racing Feedback
Feedback is given on any training session where instruction and/or encouragement is warranted, or when the athlete asks a question in their workout comments. Each race effort is also analyzed by our coaches. Race feedback typically comes in the form of an email response, a voice recording, or a phone conversation.

Video Analysis
Athletes are encouraged to send their coach video for analysis. Our coaches can critique run mechanics, as well as analyze an athlete's gait.
