Running Coaching for All
Stride Strong Coaching’s Sort-of Weekly Newsletter, The Quarter.
I am currently back coaching my wife, Sara, a little. She had a very successful career running D1 in college so she doesn’t need too much input. I just ask how she’s feeling and what she’d like to run each week then I write up a basic program to follow. The one thing we do each morning though is I ask what she has on her program and then I ask what the goal of the day is. It is a simple routine but a very valuable one.
It is essential to know the goal of each training session. It allows us to more effectively tailor our efforts, making sure we get the most out of training. It might look nice on Strava to run a quick recovery run but physiologically it is not achieving much! I love my easy days when I know I am getting gains for virtually no effort. Free money doesn’t exist but rest days come close.
When you look at your program tomorrow before heading out, take a moment to think about what it is you are trying to achieve. Then, get out there and get after it!
