What's Included in Full Service Run Coaching
We will get to know each new athlete through an initial athlete questionnaire, email exchanges, and an initial phone conversation.
Season Planning & Daily Workout Scheduling
We will develop a detailed plan that outlines time, volume, and intensity benchmarks for each day / week in a cycle. Our season plan will be shared with an athlete and will provide the athlete with information on how we intend to build fitness throughout the season.
Heart Rate Testing
We constantly monitor each athlete's heart rate data during training and racing. Initially, we set specific training zones based on heart rate testing, and then we update those zones as necessary throughout the season.
Detailed Fueling Plans
These plans are specific to the athlete's sweat rate and caloric needs for all race distances. After executing a "sweat test", we analyze the results to determine accurate hydration needs. The fueling plans include specific instructions for exactly what to eat and drink on race day.
Detailed Pacing Plans
We give specific pacing instructions for every race on an athlete's schedule. All pacing plans are detailed and are based off heart rate and pace. We leave nothing to change on race day!
Unlimited Communication & Rescheduling
There are no restrictions placed on the amount or type of communication that an athlete may have with his/her coach. Training scheduled will be changed at any time at the athlete's request.
Training & Racing Feedback
Feedback is given on any training session where instruction / encouragement is warranted or when the athlete asks a question. Each race is analyzed by the coach. Feedback typically comes in the form of an email response, a voice recording, or a phone conversation.
Run Gait / Run Form Video Analysis
If an athlete would like his/her coach to analyze their gait, this service is available and included in our coaching services. This will ensure that each athlete is running in the correct type of shoe. We also regularly critique run mechanics with a simple iPhone video.
Instructional Videos & Training Documents
We give all our athletes access to our library of training / racing / nutrition documents and also a variety of instructional videos covering run mechanics, strength movements, and more.
Website Access & Online Billing
All athletes are given a profile on ajbcoaching.com where they can share pictures, race schedules and results. We also utilize automatic billing through the website. Coaching payments can be set to recur ever 1 week, 2 weeks, or 4 weeks.
