Find a Coach
When people think of a running coach they may think elite athletes, but today coaching services are not just for elite athletes. In fact, most RRCA certified running coaches do not coach elite athletes, but they do work directly with recreational athletes looking to improve their time, increase their race distance or to get back into running after a break or after recovering from an injury and some are just looking for extra motivation to keep them on track. Whatever it is that you are looking for, there’s a coach out there for you.
Different people are look for different things from a running coach. Some people like to work with their coach in person as they train while others prefer to find a coach online who will develop a personalized training plan based on information provided by the client. Group coaching, such as that found in a running club’s group training program, is another option. The most important thing about a running coach is that he or she is a good match for you and your goals.
To ensure that you have best experience, the RRCA recommends that you work with a certified running coach to develop a personalized training plan as opposed to buying or using an off-the-shelf plan. Personalized plans take into account busy lifestyles for people. Personalized plans address speed goals as well as distance goals, and a certified coach will help you develop a realistic goal that will help ensure you run injury free.
