Virtual Coaching

I’ve been toying with reinstating my world renowned online running coaching thing. Seeing that Mommy Susan is under the tutelage of the AWESOME John “Mile 22” Ellis and that Sam I Am is out in the South Pacific playing where the palm trees sway, I would say that right now, I have two slots open.

Here’s the Skinny on how my Online Coaching works:
From a Target Race Date, I work backwards to create a customized schedule for your training. And when I say customized, I mean that I ask you specific questions about your daily schedule, what types of running that you like to do, races in your area (I’ll look up ones too), etc. And I add in some flexible times because unless you are a professional athlete (and you wouldn’t be here anyway), life happens sometimes. So we have to make the best of what we are given. Think of it as the LemonAIDE Running Schedule.

During your training program, you can either email me what you did, how it felt, etc or blog about it, or post it on an online training website (might I suggest Buckeye Outdoors?). And you’ll get to pick the inner parts of my brain on running, what to expect, what to do, tricks, improvisation, etc.

How much does it cost? Well, seeing that Susan was my first (at Coaching!) she’ll always get a waiver of goods, no matter how many programs I make for her. So should it be free? I love to do it, but No, it’ would be easy to cast aside and not give it respect if I give it to you for free, even if I wanted to. If you were hiring me as a Statistical Consultant, my current going rate for new clients starts at $75/hr. But running is my passion and so it’s really fun (Stats is just fun) and so for me to shed any responsibility on associating cost with this, I am going to leave it up to the participant. What ever YOU think it is worth, then you can make a donation to my nonprofit organization, ASD Athletes.

When can I start? Anytime really, but expect a logical, realistic goal for the target race. Just send me an email. If you don’t have my email, you can use the Contact Page on the blog.


What Else Do I need to know? I have no idea, it’s 2:28am when I am writing this, so if you have a question that would be beneficial to all those interested, then please Comment and I will reply with an answer.
