TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

Coaching Philosophy

I've always taken a patient, long-term view to things in life and that's my number one credo as a coach.

We all have short-term goals – they're essential for feedback, motivation and a whole range of things – but keeping the big picture in mind is far more important.

 

Consistency of training over a long period gives us our greatest chance of success, so I like to use a model that slowly progresses sessions and volume over months and years.

With more than 25 years of running and coaching at a state and national level, here's a few nuts and bolts of what I believe works best.

  • Runners should be well-rounded and tap into speed and strength sessions, but above all from a good aerobic base that utilises threshold training as a key ingredient.

  • Programs must be adapted to each individual.

  • We all have different strengths and weaknesses and outside influences that must be accounted for.

  • Runners should have a say in their program.

I've always found that if you're happy and having fun, it spills over into your training and the results follow.

I want our squad to be one that enjoy each other's company and share in the success of others.
