Do I need a running coach?

Having a coach certainly isn’t essential, however if you want to get the best out of yourself then having additional guidance and input with your training programme can be very useful. A coach can help you to structure your training to ensure that you are striking the right balance between the different components and are hitting peak form at the right time.

They can also hold you back when necessary to prevent overtraining and injury and can help to boost your confidence and motivation.
