Google+ Running in Cork, Ireland: Coaching

Coaching

I currently coach a number of runners for various distances and events, everything from beginners to marathons.

Please note that each plan is tailored for each individual person, it's not some sort of generic one-size fits all plan. The plan adapts according to the progress being made.

While the plans are mainly based around big events like say the Cork City Marathon, any race can be be catered for.

The plans come in several categories...

12-week Beginners programme... Cost €59

12-week Improvers programme... Cost €59

12-week Any programme for an event of 10 miles or less... Cost €59

14-week Half-Marathon programme... Cost €69

18-week Marathon programme... Cost €99

For the plans to be of value...

a) You'll have to answer questions initially so that a suitable programme can drawn up. This will be based on your current training and experience and how much time you have available. It's a plan designed to suit your life and work schedule as opposed to the other way around.

b) You'll also have to provide feedback every two weeks and the plan will be based on this.

c) You really do have to follow the plan. There is no point dipping in and out of it or be off running 5k races every weekend when you're supposed to be doing a long run. The plan can be adapted to accommodate the occasional race but they must be occasional.
