GirlTrailRunning_PageDistance Running Coach

Absoulute Coaching’s Distance Running program is designed for the recreational athlete, fitness enthusiast, and/or competitive athlete who is looking for regular, consistent coach-athlete interaction to help them reach their unique goals. It is an excellent option for many athletes who are facing the challenge of balancing training with family, work, and other important life commitments.

If racing is your goal, Absoulute Coaching takes the guesswork out of training, advising you on all aspects of preparing for, and recovering from, your race—from goal establishment and working together with a customized training schedule to communication throughout your program as well as pre-race prep and post-race recovery. Programming is based on the training principles of overload, specificity, progression, and periodization.

Whether embarking on a first 5K, returning to running after an injury, or venturing into ultrarunning, all Distance Running clients receive personal, expert guidance to help plan their available training time most effectively.
