The WHEADY MILE is
the last mile or so of a journey that, for some reason, seems to take much longer than it should. It feels as though you're about to cross the finish line and collapse in the dirt, but instead there are still more twists and turns and then, even when the race is over, you still have to find your car and drive home.
Mind you, a Wheady Mile is better than a Pisgah sight, which is when, like Moses on Mount Pisgah looking at the Promised Land, you can see something whilst knowing that you'll never get there.
A HUMAN APPROACH
trail running - ultra running - obstacle course racing - expedition - fitness
If your biggest dream rhyme with one of the above, getting coaching at your fingertips, with a human experience, can help you reach that goal.
The human machine is an amazing one; it can produce great results. But it doesn’t function like any other machine such as your smart phone. You are smart, no doubt about that. But mind you, you are much more complex than a phone. So why stubbornly attempt to follow an immutable training plan and expect to perform the program just like a computer does?
So let’s partner up as your next adventure is awaiting for you! Together, let’s create a customized plan that is right for you, and make you have a personalized experience all along the way. We meet on video or audio chat EVERY WEEK for you to learn, stay motivated, and track your progress. We constantly adapt your training plan as you evolve, while respecting your objective, lifestyle, and environment.
Athlete in ultra distances and adventurer myself, I know exactly what you can go through physically and mentally. Coaching is not a science. Coaching is an art that uses science. Running these events are 50% physical, and 90% mental. This is where, as a coach and experienced athlete, I come in. So not only we build a running plan that is flexible and adaptable to suit your lifestyle, but we also address strength training and mental training skills. I offer you more than just a training plan, I offer you a relationship with someone who believes in you and cares about the dreams you want to fulfill.
