I typically have limited availability on my coaching roster. Please contact me for availability.
If I am able to take you on, we then schedule an onboarding consultation.
A little more on my methods...
Every human may be the study of one... but science works! I have had tremendous success with methods derived from Renato Canova that were first introduced to me in 2012 and have continued to evolve since then.
Over the last decade, most of my training and coaching has been done relative to percentages of goal race pace. The mission is to develop the specific cardio-respiratory fitness and power efficiency necessary to run the goal race pace just below the Anaerobic Threshold (the point at which your body switches from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism). I use 3 different types of key workouts per week, not including the recovery runs, working through 3 phases of training between 4-6 months.
A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of experiencing a completely different approach and method called... Run Flow! First conceived by friend, coach and colleague, Richard Diaz, Run Flow is different than traditional training methods because it integrates the entire spectrum of energetic output - aerobic, anaerobic and VO2 max, into every session. I have personally trained for the Boston Marathon Pro Field using this method for a 5 month cycle and have coached many athletes using it as well. It's awesome for a number of different scenarios. Feel free to message me to learn more.
All this said, our initial consult helps decide which approach fits your goals and lifestyle best and then it's up to you to decide the path you wish to follow.
I believe training should be relatively fluid to maximize adaptation and rarely prescribe programming further than a couple of weeks to a month ahead. I work backwards from the goal race in program design but then it has to meet you where you are throughout the cycle. That to me is the real job of a coach.
