My run training philosophy is based heavily on principles founded by the legendary running coach Arthur Lydiard, also know as, “The Father of Modern Distance Running.” Although each athlete varies as to the method that is effective for them, Lydiard has said,
“Miles make the champions.”
Yet, with each workout having a purpose. Gradually building to a higher volume approach works well for distance runners. You will get your top performance with your training looked at in a long-term, periodized approach.
Lydiard said, “Train, don’t strain.” In this way, speedwork is like a spice. Too much and it can overpower and ruin the flavor of the product. Too little, and the end result is bland, without much “kick”. The key is basing training upon researched principles, and then finding the amount that works for each athlete to maximize their performance.
Unlike many coaches, I will not push you through tons of overly hard workouts such that you are constantly fatigued, getting injured, and dragging through your days. I have a core value of health, so instead I emphasize that you are able to train at your best, day after day, such that the goal is not just to make it successfully through today’s workout, but also the next and the one after that. My runners constantly say they feel so much more JOY in running, which is good, because running is a feedback loop into LIFE.
You also cannot be at your best with someone cursorily glazing over your training, so I purposefully limit my client base so you get complete and total focus into your training.
If you just want to do “o-kay”, then have someone just look at your running. But if you want to get your top performance, I believe you need a coach that will also holistically consider the condition of your mind, body, spirit, and lifestyle, to make this happen.
With my additional professional fitness training certifications, I also believe that runners do best taking care of the details outside of running such as strength work, drills and core, proper nutrition and overall wellness. Olympic marathon runner Meb Keflezighi also shares this belief, and feels that tending to these “details” is what allowed him to have continued success into his 40’s.
Above all, I believe that you have a right to live your dreams and have a healthy and fulfilling life. More than PR’s or winning races, I believe your training is best when it is challenging but fun, and is prioritized into an overall lifestyle of health. It is optimized when you as the runner truly LOVES what you are doing.
My mission is to help you obtain your best running performance through optimized training and holistic health for your best LIFE. That is YOU… RUNNING WITH LIFE!
