FAQ

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Do you work with athletes of all abilities?

Yes, we do! We serve a wide range of athletes from first-time marathoners to olympic trial qualifiers, and everything in between!

I have a challenging schedule, can you help me?

Yes, we successfully work with numerous athletes having a busy life/work schedule. Everything is individualized, so your training program is tailored around your goals and responsibilities.

I am not sure what my time goal is yet, is it okay?

Of course! Training will indicate to us what can be achieved. As you progress through the training we will work out a predicted race pace and detailed race-day strategy. Focus on your running, we will do the rest.

INDIVIDUALIZED IN-PERSON GROUP COACHING

Is attending the training sessions mandatory?

No, they are not. However, attending the sessions will elevate your performances and will allow us to have a bigger impact on your progress, so you are encouraged to attend whenever you can.

I can only attend one session a week, is that okay?

Yes. Attending the sessions is not mandatory but is highly recommended, so attend whenever you can.

Can I switch sessions if I can’t make the one I am registered for?

Please reach out to us privately. We are able to make occasional switches.

Will I run alone or within a group?

We always try to partner up athletes of similar goals and fitness level when attending our training sessions.

What groups are available?

There is a group for everyone. From our leaders training towards a sub 1:15:00 Half-Marathon/ 2:40 Full-Marathon to our beginner athletes.

  • The Leaders (Sub 2:50 Marathon achieved and below)
  • CMSub3 Leaders (Sub 2:55 Marathon goal)
  • CMSub3 (Sub 3-hr Marathon goal)
  • CMSub3 Chase Pack (Sub 3:15 Marathon goal)
  • CMSub330 (Sub 3:30 Marathon goal)
  • CMSub4 Leaders (Sub 3:45 Marathon goal)
  • CMSub4 (Sub 4-hr Marathon goal)
  • CMSub4 Chase Pack (Sub 4:30 Marathon goal)
  • Novice (Sub 5-hr Marathoners and above)

Do I have to commit to a group?

No, we are in charge of making and changing the groups and no commitment is necessary. We pair athletes of similar fitness and goals, but reserve the right to make adjustments every session based on the specific goal we are trying to achieve with each individual athlete.

What if the training sessions don’t fit my schedule?

Then we recommend sining up for the Personalized Online Coaching, which offers the same services for the sole exception of hands-on training sessions.

PERSONALIZD ONLINE COACHING

What does Personalized Online Coaching look like?

A day to day individualized training plan through the TrainingPeaks App. Every run and workout is fully explained. Your training program is updated weekly as you progress. We work around your schedule and are able to make any adjustments on a daily basis. Below is a sample week for an athlete.

Can you make adjustment to the training plan if my schedule changes?

YES! We update the training schedule as need be and adjust the training with your progress!

How often are we in contact ?

We are always in touch to follow how you feel and to maintain a healthy athlete/coach relationship. A weekly check-in via video chat and daily comments on Training Peaks are used to closely follow your progress and get your feedback.

Can I check-in more often?

Yes, freely! Simply make your appointment via youcanbookme.

PERSONALIZED STATIC TRAINING PLAN

What is the difference between Personalized Online Coaching and a Personalized Static Training Plan?

When choosing the Online Coaching, you opt to have us along your whole training cycle, while the Static Plan is a tool put at your disposal.
Both are day-to-day online plans geared towards your goals. Although, the online coaching allows us to observe you and update the plan accordingly with your progress, schedule changes, and anything else that may come in the way, while the static plan is not updated after its creation.

Can the plan be made around my schedule?

Yes, we create the training plan based on your goals, experience, and around your responsibilities.

How long is the static plan?

It can be up to 4 months and typically ends with your selected goal race.
