Not often are coaches going to give their perspective on what they learn in training, but I thought I would give this one a go. I work with New coming Triathletes to Ironman Athletes, I have spent a few years growing as a coach and every year I learn more about people and coaching and this year I am about to start putting those thoughts down, where you can see them. This is not a way to air things about individuals it is going to focus solely on my purpose in coaching and my coaching perspective on my new challenges every day. I hope you enjoy and find some helpful hints here.
I am currently producing the first week of program plans, I run people on a 4 week schedule, every week I have a selection of 4 week program plans to prepare for athletes to take them from where they are to where they are going. This is a balancing act that really can be difficult and sometimes you feel as though the athlete should be more involved in these decisions and I already feel like I should be more involved in their decisions. This year communication is going to have to get better to make sure I have a winning field of athletes. My athletes train out of Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. I do not do program plans for everyone on the team, I am available to coach those who want to attend my classes, I am available to coach those who want a program plan.
