Should you hire a virtual running coach?
If you’re stuck in a rut with your training, reached a plateau or simply looking for some new ideas and a different training stimulus then working with a virtual running coach might be an important next step in your run training.
Benefits of Working With A Coach
Working with a virtual running coach is ideal for runners who can’t make it down to regular club sessions or have to train on their own at often unsociable hours. It’s also a great idea to hire a virtual running coach if you work shift work or have a busy family life. This will help if you need more structure and guidance to help you get the most out of your precious time. Most coaches use an online training provider such as TrainingPeaks to deliver their training plans, meaning you have access to your training often at the touch of a button!
There are many different virtual running coaches out there each offering their own training ideas and philosophies.
In comparison to working with a personal trainer, working with a virtual running coach can offer a cost effective way of getting a training plan that’s tailored to your fitness levels and goals moving forwards. Taking out the in person contact, it also opens up the possibility of working with a running coach not necessarily close to your or even on the same continent!
Having a running coach to take accountability and and take away the guess work and uncertainty is a huge help and ensures you can focus on the training itself!
Whilst we also offer a range of training plans for varying abilities and time goals, working with a running coach is a sure way of ensuring your training is suited to your current time commitments and time available to train.
