Exciting news – Girl Fit is now offering running coaching! If the recent Boston Marathon has you excited and inspired to start running, read on!
Running coaching is a way for recreational (and professional!) runners to work one-on-one with a coach who will help them maximize their potential while minimizing the risk of injury and burnout. Coaches will create a training plan to help you reach your running goals, will track your progress, and will help keep you motivated and accountable during your training. Running coaches can also help to answer any questions you may have about running and training. This may include questions about running form, strength training, cross training, nutrition, hydration, to mental skills and more.
At your first session with your running coach, you can expect to answer questions about your running goals and your running background. Then your coach will then create a custom training plan tailored specifically to you. This plan will be subject to change as you progress through your training, based on how you are doing and feeling. In subsequent sessions, your coach will review your training log and will check in to see how things are going, and will be able to answer any questions you may have. Your coach will also be available to answer any questions over email between sessions. Most of all, your coach will be your biggest cheerleader throughout the entire process!
