Training Strategy

Run Slow To Run Fast

When you engage with me as a running coach, we will train with 80% of your mileage spent at an easy effort and 20% spent in up-tempo or speedwork sessions. If you haven’t trained like this before, it may feel too easy. But the most common mistake novice marathoners make is training at an unsustainable pace. 

I will build you a personalized training plan tailored to your current running fitness that will help you improve your running. These plans undergo regular updates on a weekly basis, taking into account feedback and assessing your evolving running performance.

While it may initially seem counterintuitive, I've observed time and again that incorporating slower-paced runs can effectively contribute to reducing marathon times.

Marathon training is undeniably challenging, but my approach will empower you to reach new PRs and enjoy the process.
