Critical Conversations You Should Have With Your Running Coach

podcast Jan 22, 2019

Do you need a running coach? Can’t you just download a free plan from the internet and get to work?  And if you hire one, what do you even talk about with them?


I am a coach, and of course I believe that everyone can benefit from having a coach. Running coaches aren’t just the type of runner you might consider faster or elite. If you are new to running, a coach can be just as important to your success, especially when it comes to helping you continue lacing up and getting out the door.


In this week's podcast, I cover eight types of conversations you might want to have with your coach. Remember your coach is someone you’ve hired to be in your corner, to support you, to help you plan, to help you work through challenges and all the mental things that runners experience as we train. I truly care about each of the people I coach. I want them to run the races they have poured their hearts into. And I want them to get to race day happy, healthy and strong, knowing they have given it their all, and hopefully learned a few things about themselves that will carry over into other aspects of their lives.

Listen in this week to hear the types of things I think you should be talking about with your coach. I’d love to hear your input, so be sure to comment on a social media post or email me at [email protected]
