If you’ve signed up for the New York City Marathon, you’re probably about to plan and tweak a generic training plan to fit your ever-changing needs. Right? Don’t bother.
If you’re serious about your running – and I’m sure you are – because you’ve decided to do one of the coolest marathons in the WORLD, you should hire a personal running coach to help you run your absolute best through the 5 boroughs of New York City.
A personal coach, such as TrainWithMarc, will give you a detailed training plan that is specific to you and only you. A TWM plan takes into account everything that’s going on in your life. If you’ve ever trained for a race before, you know that your training doesn’t always go perfectly, and a coach who can modify your plan is the best way to go.
So instead of guessing about what to do when you’re tired, sore or feeling an injury creep up, just check in with Marc and he can make sound judgement calls about what do do with your training. He can modify what you do or suggest the appropriate amount of cross training to help you get back on track.
If you’re still unsure about whether a coach is the right thing for you, you should read Theodora’s post about her NYC Marathon experience – I coached her for NYCM 2011 and she finished the day with a 40 minute marathon PR. That’s over a 90 seconds a mile faster than her previous best marathon.
Here’s what TrainWithMarc will offer:
- Determine the proper training routine for your respective race
- Set race specific goals
- Improve your endurance
- Find motivation
- Develop racing strategies
- Reach your training and racing goals
