Endurance Coaching Philosophy

Every Journey Starts With A Dream

Athletes seek out a coach in search of a plan; their path to reach a dream goal they may have. Whether it be a couch to 5k, or securing a qualifying spot in a grand stage event, the coach is there to not only light the path, but guide the athlete safely and effectively toward that dream.

There are certain keys to making progress in endurance sports: discipline, consistency, sustainability and balance. My most important belief is the last one, balance, followed by discipline, which then builds consistency. After all this is done in a measurable and safe manner, sustainability can be achieved.

Here, we use the S.M.A.R.T. system in setting up the athletes goals

S – Specific – Set real goals with real deadlines

“I want to run 4:15 at the NYC marathon in November 2022”

M – Measurable – Make sure your goal is trackable

“I will track this goal using training zones and fitness tracking”

A – Attainable – Work towards a goal that is challenging, but possible

The Athletes currently runs a 4:20-4:25 Marathon time. "Rome wasn’t built in a day."

R – Realistic – Be honest with yourself- you know what you are capable of

Only you will know how much more effort and time you can put into your training

T – Time Bound – Give yourself a deadline

Don’t tell yourself I hope to run a 4:15 marathon “someday”

Enjoy The Process

Here at Givin_It_A_Tri we take the confusion and stress out of your training plans to create a more enjoyable training experience. We will utilize different phases in your training throughout the year.

Foundation – This is the most important part of training, we talk about strengths and tackle weaknesses, and put into action how we will improve and get better for the following phases. This is typically 6 months out from your goal events.

Preparation – We start to build your fitness towards that S.M.A.R.T. goal. The skills and weaknesses that were worked on during the foundation phase will start to get sharpened with specific training and improved skill.

Race – We are specifically deep into a training plan, training in race like conditions based on what type of event you have and the race course conditions (hilly terrain etc.) and continuing to hone your individual strengths and weaknesses.
