The ultimate goal as an athlete with DC Running Coach is to not only improve your level of fitness, but to reach a peak level of fitness for one (or two) particular point(s) in the year. Whether it is a local 5k, an upcoming PT test, or your first marathon, your coach will take strides with you (no pun intended) to help you have a successful season.
Having a personal coach to develop a customized plan will introduce you to new methods of training. You will receive feedback regarding your pacing and intensity to ensure your training progresses, and you will also receive help in allocating each workout to a specific day in your schedule to ensure it is feasible to adhere to the program.
However, the primary service of DCRC is not the program put on paper, rather, the primary service is the consistent mental approach to training and racing. There are plenty of options for finding training programs online and in magazines, but DCRC offers the consideration of why a particular workout does or does not fit your individual plan. For instance, is the question how fast you should run a particular race, or whether you should be running the race at all? Much of this is related to your running form.
