Congratulations Megan! - A Running Review
Congratulations to my run coaching client Megan on finishing the Charlotte Marathon just five weeks after Twin Cities was cancelled. You were consistent in your training and battled hard all the way through. It was great working with you. You did it!
"I initially sought out Jon as a coach because I trusted his expertise and wanted to train for and complete a marathon without injuring myself. My experience with Coach Jon was beneficial for several additional reasons I had not anticipated. First, Jon provided accountability. Checking in weekly and knowing I would send him each of my training run results got me out the door on days when I might have given myself a pass to skip it. Second, you don't know what you don't know. A good coach shows you your blind spots and teaches you what you need to know. For example, Jon taught me how and when to foam roll and how to run downhill, which helped me to avoid injury; I never would have considered these skills on my own. Third, coaching gives you customization. An app can give you a plan but it can't tell you how to adjust your runs with that trip coming up or when you are not feeling well. An app definitely could not have recalibrated a training plan when the marathon was canceled and I signed up for another one 5 weeks later. Jon did that. Perhaps most importantly, Coach Jon kept the faith when my self-confidence waivered. I believed him when he believed in me, and you need that when running hundreds of miles over a few months. It is important to show up to the starting line with the confidence that you are properly trained for the event. The confidence and knowledge that Coach Jon provided helped get me to the finish line."
