I've also decided to continue running every day - it's had a lot of benefits for me, not least that I keep running when I'm on holiday or "life gets in the way", even if it's just 2k a day, and it's helped me retain fitness and recover faster from hard efforts. Two half marathon PBs last year and a 10k PB already this year; something about it clearly works for me!
Hello everyone and happy new year! I certainly take a huge amount of benefit from having a coach. Some of it is science, some motivation, some problem solving support. But I have taken 50 min off my marathon time since working with one. Coaches are expensive but it does depend how you think about it.
Mine is approximately the price of a London gym membership. I think that having a coach is a unique way of squeezing out the best of your running capabilities. However, I have trained for 4 marathons but only been able to run 2 of them due to overuse injuries, so something was amiss. Not blaming coach for this btw. The valuable thing about either of these is that, if followed more or less to the letter, you can toe the line in the knowledge that you can trust the training.
The weather may let you down, or something else, but you should be entirely capable of putting in a good time. Hello kyd, happy new year. I saw an interesting video on youtube that included a study of cyclists not elites, but serious. After 12 weeks of well structured "best practice" training, it was clear that the general 'across the board' result was a likely improvement in performance. However, this was not the case for everyone and the variation in the cyclists' improvements was huge. Interestingly, quite a few went through all that training and did not improve at all - some even got worse despite training for 12 weeks using best practice plans!
There must therefore be significant individual factors at play that sometimes override or work against the sports science generic best practice advice.
I think this is one area where a good coach comes in: to identify what works best for each of his athletes as individuals. As per the last slide in the video, unlike the sports scientists who do group studies and reach general conclusions, the coach says "I observe mitigated responses. I'm using it only with athletes A and B but it does not work with C and D".
Try to run according to somewhat of plan. My problem is and I think I will have to get over this if I want to get faster that I hate when they get complicated. I like to just be told to either to run slow, fast, short or long, instead of trying to decode a host of acronyms. I ran a half marathon in Armagh and accidentally came second. Meant to pace a friend but that didn't work out and after a mile found myself in 3rd. Decided to push on a bit and see what would happen, past the guy in 2nd in the last two miles.
Don't expect to ever finish that high in a race again, so will enjoy the feeling whilst it lasts! I agree duke - if the plan looks too complicated, I tend to move on! I don't have the patience to decipher. I think that's also why I was no good at knitting - I didn't have the patience to understand the patterns. In my club we're lucky enough to have a few level 2 and 3 coaches who will provide their services via the club for free. So I have a coach who's taken on a few of us who have specific goals - mine being Brighton Marathon in four hours.
I also used a different club coach to get me to a sub-2 half a few years ago, and for London marathon last year. For me, off-the-shelf training programmes are massively stressful as I can never make them fit around my life. The joy of having a real live human being putting a programme together for you is that you actually talk to one another about what's possible and what isn't, and they can work with you. It took me and my current coach lots of batting backwards and forwards to get the Brighton programme right.
Despite the meticulous planning though, life intervened. A sprained ankle on almost the last day of has meant almost two weeks of rest and rehab. Marathon training was supposed to begin today, but instead I spent a gloomy hour in the gym while the kids swam. Is the elliptical trainer the dullest thing known to humankind? I think it could be. Sorry to hear about your ankle and I hope you feel OK to run on it soon. Are there at least some interesting podcasts to make impact-free machines more bearable?
Twelve Questions: Bryce Langston - NZ Herald
Hello and happy new year all! I would love a coach but will need to up my running significantly before I can justify one I think. I'm especially interested in having someone look at my form and help me correct it. I've never had the need to investigate a training plan, but I don't see that they need to be too complicated.
I guess one of the main things a more detailed plan of prescribed workouts aids is discipline to actually get them done. I have been thinking about goals for this year and have come up with the following: Get back to parkrun and beat my 5k pb Do my first track Run a 'fast' mile not going to put a number on it but want to see how fast I can go Enter and complete my first HM Run km up from previous highest of km last year I suppose I need to add in finally overcoming my persistent ankle injury so that I can run more regularly and longer distances. This will be the major obstacle to completing the last 2 goals in that list.
Paul some coaches will actually do one offs for precisely what you suggest - just looking at your running form and helping you address any obvious issues though hopefully they would also take a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach! If you are in London I can even recommend someone. My running a bit like my cycling started as a way to keep fit between weekends in the mountains. It has also helped shift the extra 15kg that I had acquired in my mid forties.
In the 18 months since I started, I have come to enjoy it as it's own discipline, rather than just a means to an end. However, it is very much an ad hoc activity. Sometimes after the school run and before work, sometimes lunchtime and sometimes in the evening. I don't think a coach would work for me. Goals for were affected by falling off my MTB and breaking my collarbone, but there were some milestones other than just going a little bit faster.
First in age group at parkrun - I managed this a lot earlier than expected. It was not even a PB time, but all the faster runners in my group were somewhere else. It was also nice to get 20th overall as well.. Run the Yorkshire 3 Peaks - I walk it most years, but wanted to try and run it. I came in a few seconds under 6H30M not as good as I hoped, but beating my previous 8H13M which was a walk with a few downhill trots and in no way an attempt to 'run' the course.
Three Peaks again, but walk it twice in two days. I had tried this before and failed, but this year I managed it. Swimming has never really been my thing, but it really helped with the shoulder recovery. Getting to 1K, then 1 mile and then finally in December a 2K swim. Times were not an issue, it was all about distance without putting a foot down. Goals for Actually race something other than parkrun - Maybe try a HM as I have run the distance a few times in ad hoc runs.
Have a go at a sprint triathlon with an indoor swim - m, 20K, 5K Run the Yorkshire 3 Peaks again and get in under 6H. This should be possible as the rules allow any circular route taking in the summits and I have test walked a route that is 3K shorter, albeit it with a much steeper ascent of Whernside and a boggier crossing between PYG in Ribblehead I would like to get another two parkrun age group firsts, one in my current group and one in the next group up after my birthday.
In theory, being at the young end of the new group should be easier, but unfortunately that group is packed with fast runners. Finally, the biggest challenge My best parkrun is , so it seems possible.

If it looks like I am failing this one at parkrun, I can always try a track 5K I started working with a coach last year and that has been a revelation. When things are going well, it can be hard to know how it's different from following a training plan - except that the training plan is a particularly good one. The benefits really become clear when there's a need to adapt. I've found it interesting to see how my coach has built my running back up after I took a few weeks off when I hurt my knee.
I am continually anxious when various components aren't in the weekly plan, because I've read somewhere that they are important.

But the articles I read are generic advice for generic runners, usually with a generic race in mind. It's great to be able to trust my coach to work out how to apply all the research and what we know about training to my particular circumstances. I reckon the hardest part about self-coaching would be to have that objectivity about your training.
Since the last Monday Debrief way back in ! I've had spectacular runs along the coast, back home, in Sydney, Australia. I'm visiting friends and family over the uni break and loving the hot weather, beautiful views, and post-run swims. I wish I could teleport here for all my long runs especially. How much longer have you got in Australia before you have to head back to Binghamton NY, and more importantly, have you got to run with your dad?
Less than a week to go BHP. No run with dad yet I've just been building up the mileage over the last few weeks km last week , with several runs on quite hilly terrain and a couple of decent enough parkruns over the Xmas break. Hopefully this is building up leg strength and I can continue this progression. As for the coach vs no coach theme, ultimately its a very individual choice. I had a coach for 18 months between He definitely helped me get to that "next level" but after a not-great marathon performance in , I decided to do my own thing and have remained coach-less ever since. FYI, my former coach remains a good friend The only PB I'm yet to crack without a coach is the marathon but I believe this is only a matter of time.
I wouldn't say I'm a runner who is completely "uncoachable" but making my own decisions about my training and racing is very important to me and that will always take priority over anything a coach would advise me. I'm sure that you'll crack your marathon target soon! LM, you are getting some really good long runs in at the moment - that's going to help a lot in your next marathon. If a coach said to you, you are racing too much, then you'd probably just have to agree it was the wrong coach! Your running is looking particularly strong these days LM and nice and varied, I feel you're on the brink of a long distance PB!
Happy New Year to you all! I've occasionally thought about getting a coach, usually too close to the next marathon cycle, then the moment passes. I think one of the challenges that I'd imagine I'd have would be following a plan set by someone who doesn't know my schedule and constraints. I am usually pretty flexible with my weekly schedule even more so outside a specific training block - out of necessity.
If I were paying someone for their coaching services I'd feel obliged to work to their schedule more closely - which could lead to stresses elsewhere. So, I tend to work through things with books, input from other runners and one or two of my club's coaches. Would a coach improve the output? Possibly, possibly not. I suspect most of the big gains have been made by this point. An area where I have found external feedback helpful is in goal-setting.
It can be easy to convince yourself to choose goals that are maybe not too big. I've found when runners I respect started saying what times they thought I could run and there was a significant gap - it made me take on the idea that maybe I limit the potential upside in my racing. Over the last couple of years I have raced far more by feel than by what my watch says. Last year I had a stretch goal to make the top ranking in the Power of 10 marathon rankings in the UK. With a bit of luck I made it in at - in part due to the sharp change of season just before the London Marathon.
I've still to set my targets for , though Fukuoka 'B' standard is still out there. Out of curiosity I had a look on the power of 10 website and it really does put your efforts last year into some perspective David. Pretty, pretty impressive. I hope that you have a great If we grow into a culture that focuses on fair distribution of resources, care of the planet and pursuit of non-material happiness, then I think downsized homes will become normal.
