Motivation: Often one of our biggest road blocks ñ but the continuous motivation the club relationship offers is second to none. As a club you can share the trials and tribulations, you can give support and will receive twice as much in return. Furthermore, a good coach can provide the necessary jump-start beginners need and can provide continuous pushing for experienced athletes who are trying to improve their times.
Program and Planning: Your coach, who is an experienced endurance athlete himself, can provide you with the workouts necessary to achieve your goals. Each plan is individualized to your specific running level and will be adjusted as you improve. This takes the guess work out of training. All you have to do is follow the program and communicate with your coach.
Advice and feedback: Your coach as well as experienced fellow teammates can provide you with advice based upon experience and reassurance that your training is on-track. If problems occur, the group can provide you with troubleshooting.
Injury Prevention: Many beginning and even some experienced runners do not know about proper running form and your coach will be able to evaluate your stride and form to help prevent overuse injuries common in runners. Your coach will also monitor your progress with an eye on preventing over training and fatigue.
FUN: This is one of the most important reasons to train with a team. The energy created by running in a group is hard to describe. Many friendships are formed from running groups. With this group you will have the opportunity to meet individuals of varying ages, lifestyles and backgrounds, but we will all share the common interest of running for enjoyment.
