Coach Coogan shares training strategies that will shave minutes off your client’s race times, and he provides guidance on sleeping and eating well, finding personal support, psychologically navigating setbacks and challenges, and lowering injury risk—all while having a life outside of running.
Learn the physical and psychological strategies needed to build an aerobic base, balance hard work and recovery, achieve good running form, and turn adversity into an advantage. Understand the importance of strengthening and warm-up exercises. Master running drills that build stronger runners. Plus, access 30 online video clips that showcase the exercises and drills in action.
Coogan provides numerous training schedules for the mile, 5K, 10K, half marathon, and marathon as well as schedules for running multiple races in a short period of time. For each distance, you and your clients can choose the length of training (from 6 weeks to 16 weeks) and weekly mileage range. The plans are supplemented with training and racing tips to help you better understand how to apply the concepts.
You’ll also get a personal look at what successful runners do as Coach Coogan shares some of his own experiences as a runner and coach. And you’ll draw plenty of inspiration from the athlete profiles of eight of his accomplished runners, including Drew Piazza, Alexi Pappas, and Elle St. Pierre.
