Why would I need a running coach when I can download a free training plan from the Internet?
In the past running coaches were reserved for elite athletes but this is no longer the case and having a coach is an accessible option for any runner that wants to improve.
Coaching is much more than just a training plan. Having a coach means that you always have somebody there to support you and give you advice. They can be there to give you a push and accountability, support you if things go wrong or pull you back if you’re over doing it.
A running coach will write a plan for you that will be tailored to your individual needs taking into account your running experience, goals, injury history and other life commitments. A good coach will be able to make real time changes to your plan if things go wrong or life gets in the way. If you have a setback, a coach will ensure that you build back up sensibly and take the guesswork out of how to get back on track.
It is now a really accessible and affordable option to have a running coach. My coaching plans start from £10/week which I think is very good value for what I offer. Having said that, do your research to find the right coach for you. The price doesn’t always reflect the value, check out reviews and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
