The Perfect Gift For The Runner In Your Life

By Ann Alyanak

Are you still looking for the perfect gift for that special someone in your life? Is that person a runner? A Run S.M.A.R.T coaching package can make a great gift. Or maybe you need to be honest with yourself. If you’re reading this maybe getting a coach could be the perfect gift for you! Ok, I am a coach and I’m clearly biased but there are many good reasons why starting a coaching subscription can do wonders for your running. Fall into one of these categories?

Has your racing hit a plateau?

A Run S.M.A.R.T. coach can tweak your training and introduce new challenges to create a breakthrough. If you continue to complete the same workouts it will lead to the same results. A coach will have new ideas and training plans to help you improve your recent results. He or she can objectively look at your previous training to find your strengths and weaknesses and work with these to put a plan together to help you reach your goals.

“Like A Guardian Angel”

The latest addition to our private coaching testimonials page is from Run SMART client Jane Svehlak, who had some really kind words to share about her coach Alicia Shay:

Alicia has been my very first ‘training’ partner, being there with me everyday the past four months (943 miles away), like a guardian angel on my shoulder during my runs. The oddity of pairing one of the world’s fastest long distance runners with one of the world’s slowest has been a humbling experience for me.  Alicia has given so generously in developing a training & nutrition plan to fit my fitness level and to help me achieve my personal fitness goals. She treated me with the same respect as a top coach would give to an elite athlete.

Top 10 Reasons To Purchase A Run SMART Training Plan

10.)  Accommodates Racing Schedule Along the Way
No more guessing what to do in the days prior to races you run leading up to your goal race, or how to adjust for a workout that should have been completed on race day. Run SMART Training Plans, unlike any other option on the market today, adjust for races in the weeks prior to your goal race.

9.)  Adjusts for Fitness Improvements Throughout Your Training
Generic plans don’t account for fitness improvements. Run SMART Training Plans anticipate natural body changes when a client is training. As their fitness improves along the way, the quality sessions week to week change to help the client continue to move forward and get faster. How can you improve if your schedule doesn’t anticipate you improving?
