Overview of coaching:

If your goal is to run your first trail marathon, qualify for Boston, or run your 10th 100 mile ultra, Ultrarunner Training has the tools to make your passions come to life.

Many generalized training plans incorporate Heart Rate Zones for training. But how do you know if these heart rate zones are right for you? To get the most out of Heart Rate training one must understand how their heart rate is affecting their training.

Heart rate is a powerful tool to making your training more effective and purposeful but without a personalize evaluation of your own physiology, Heart rate zones can severely hinder your performance by under or over-training you, leading you to never fully reaching your potential. 

At Ultrarunner Training we utilize your own physiological data, based on your lactate threshold test, to build a personalized training plan to help you reach your fullest potential as an athlete. 

Once you have your own personalized Heart Rate Zones your heart rate monitor becomes more than a novelty, it becomes a tool that can help you reach a higher level of fitness and athletic performance.

Monthly plan includes:

  • Initial one-on-one consultation
  • Monthly training plan
  • Premium Training peaks account for quick transfer of heart rate data for analysis and feedback
  • Sport Nutrition
  • Heart Rate Race plan
  • Injury prevention stategies
  • Recovery strategies

By living our passion of running and striving for personal goals we understand that anything may be possible.

Video Running analysis and running efficiency drills
(hourly rate)

Many overuse injuries are often caused, at least in part, by poor biomechanics. And endurance runners are predominantly at risk due to the high volume of miles required to perform in their chosen sport. There is a new theory of running biomechanics which holds that the stride is best improved through self awareness of personal biomechanics and repetitive running drill training.

It is well known that stride efficiency and power increase automatically through specific training drills. So it holds true that through a combination of conscious awareness and manipulations of running gait awareness and specific efficient running drill training, that the athlete can make gains in power and efficiency. There by reducing the amount of stress and injuries associated with endurance running.

How it works:

Gait analysis involves walking or running on a treadmill in a wide range of paces, then reviewed in relationship of your feet, ankles, knees, hips and torso during  your running gait cycle. This video is then be relayed to a laptop where slow motion and freeze frames can be used to carefully assess your running style. The theory of efficient running will be reviewed and running drills will be implemented into your weekly training plan.

  • A frame by frame video is taken of your running through a wide range of paces.
  • Review of your running gait cycle.
  • Theory of efficient running will be reviewed.
  • Efficiency running drills will be taught and reviewed for weekly training plan.
