Consulting

I have spent the last several years intensely studying the human body and how it adapts, or fails to adapt, to distance running.  I have personally coached and advised runners ranging from 12 to 33 years of age, I have planned workouts for high-level runners at distances ranging from 400 meters to the marathon, and I have studied the training programs of the greatest distance runners and coaches in the world.  On top of that, I have worked ardently to understand questions of injury prevention, treatment, and recovery—planning how to individualize training to fit a specific athlete's needs is one of my specialties.

More than anything else, I love to share my knowledge with other runners and coaches.  If you'd like to talk about your own training, or if you're a coach and you're wondering about a training plan or a specific workout that you've planned for your athletes, I'd love to hear from you.  I'm available for consulting on an individual or group basis via phone, email, or Skype.  Drop me a note at john@runningwritings.com and we'll set up a time that works for you!

Here are some topics I've consulted on with athletes and coaches in the past:
  • Reviewing a cross country training plan
  • Preparing for an ultramarathon
  • Developing a strength routine for a high school program that has no access to lifting equipment
  • Plyometrics exercises for 1500m versus 10k runners
  • How to manage a "double peak" season (performing well indoors and outdoors)
  • How to run high mileage injury-free
  • Fueling strategies for the marathon
  • Training for extremely injury-prone runners
  • Cross-training to maintain running fitness while injured
If you'd like some advice on these or any other topics, let's get in touch.
