It can be difficult for a runner to achieve success which can prove frustrating. I wake up every morning and work to pave a path to success which will allow every runner I work with to thrive and fulfil their potential. I have developed a strong coaching philosophy which involves educating athletes on all the elements of running that need to be considered so that ultimately they can take ownership of their training.
I believe that you need to be strong in every aspect of your life to achieve your goals. This includes having a progressive strength and conditioning programme that complements you running training. This is often neglected by athletes due to time commitments or because it is not seen as enjoyable, however, it is vital if you are looking to build a consistent running programme and see constant gradual improvement.
Your lifestyle and wellbeing also need to be strong. Sleep, nutrition and your recovery between sessions are imperative but often overlooked by athletes. Increasing focus on these aspects is another tool to maximise your performance and ensure no hard work is wasted. A programme that focuses on running alone is not sufficient for athletes looking for consistent progression every year.
