JSET-full gives you a complete, personalised training program alongside an attentive online coach. This means you’ll get analysis, interaction & motivation from me. If you have a specific race goal, your training plan will provide a road map to get you from today to race day. If you don’t have a specific race goal JSET assesses your fitness, and sets weekly training goals each week according to your current ability – always pushing you to improve. Your lifestyle, training preferences, intermediate races, and any other information you give me will all be taken into account as we progress.
Analysis – I have a strong understanding of running physiology, and I will share this knowledge with you as your training progresses. Additionally I have a real love for data analysis that means I am able to give you extra insight into your training that might be tricky to see on your own.
Interaction – on the face of it running is a simple sport, but as I’m always reminded when buying running shoes; there’s a bewildering variety of (often conflicting) advice out there on subjects ranging from training techniques and technology fads to nutritional supplements and recovery advice. I do my best to give you clear, actionable advice on all things running related (or un-related to running for that matter, but I’m much less useful for career / relationship / life advice).
Motivation – everyone knows it can be tricky to motivate yourself to get out there and train week in, week out for months on end. As your online marathon coach, I help to encourage you to reach your potential simply by keeping a close eye on your training. If the urge to sit inside and eat cake overpowers your desire to run you’ll have to explain that to me.
