Training Consultations: How is this different from Online Coaching?
- For runners who already possess the skills and understanding necessary to develop their own training plan, but will benefit from hiring a coach to review their plans, assess their needs, and provide guidance and advice (i.e. training paces, injury prevention/management, gear questions, race day nutrition, hydration and pacing strategy, etc)

- Runners must be able to provide plans and past log (or general outline of training ideas) via email to facilitate bi-monthly review.
- Runners can request review of their entire training plan (i.e. 20 week plan) during initial month.
- Every two (2) weeks past training log/history is reviewed to take a look at what was accomplished in the two weeks prior and how your past training accomplishments should impact and guide the training plans for the next two weeks and into the future.
- In between comprehensive reviews and advice, questions or concerns about training can be sent via email to be answered within 72 hours or sooner.
