This is Tim and I’m taking over Coach Marc’s website for the day. I run 5k and 10k races all throughout South Jersey. My PR for 5k is 16:03. I’m writing to tell you about my coach, Marc…
My experience thus far has been great. After running on my own for about 6 years after college running, I figured online coaching was worth a shot. So far I’m really liking where it has been going. The best part about my training now is every run I do has a purpose, I no longer aimlessly run miles and see where it might take me. I don’t need to worry about planning what my workouts will be and training is always in sync with my race schedule. Keeping track of everything in google drive helps me track my training and also gives Marc feedback for when he is planning for me.
He also makes me focus on things that I know are my weaknesses, like strength training. Having these days built in reminds me that I have to do these exercises. Marc understands that to be a good runner, takes more than just running!!
His workouts always bring just enough challenge in which they are tough, but attainable. These keep me motivated and hungry. I’m hoping I can build off the base and workouts I have accomplished this spring and translate it to fast 5k times in the fall.
