I am the Lead Coach with Performance Endurance Training and have been coaching endurance athletes for 30 years (yes I am that old 🙂 )
I have a mantra in my coaching – ‘Believe in the Process’. “The process of setting a goal on the outer boundaries of what we think is possible, and then systematically pursuing it, is one of the most fulfilling parts of being human” Stulberg & Magness (2017)
We all set goals in our lives and then go through a process as we strive to fulfil them. Running should be no different if we want to be the best we can be. I set myself coaching goals to provide the appropriate environment so that my athletes can perform to their potential.
If you understand the process, have appropriate support and a tailored training plan to follow, the process of improvement will happen and the short and long term outcomes of this process will be evident in your health, fitness and race performances. To do this everyone needs access to a qualified coach and for some people this access can be challenging either due to geography or not finding a suitably qualified coach so that they can form an effective athlete-coach relationship.
In supporting athletes, I am delighted to work with extremely well experienced Associate professionals. Their details are provided in the Associates section where you will find links to professionals and businesses who may be of assistance. These Associates are key in their role in providing biomechanical, strength & conditioning, nutritional and psychological support.
