Mary is a very busy 36 year old mother and wife as well as a full-time manager of a running apparel store and is looking to improve her fitness and health.
How does she do it? ----> Her first step: Hire a professional coach to write her programming for her...
Mary has been kind enough to allow us to provide insight into her training plan from the beginning and track her progress along the way.
This will be the first time Mary will work with a personal coach that aligns her goals to her life and fitness plan. She has followed some basic workout/running programs in the past, but nothing specific to her needs or goals.
We found some good information in her initial consultation. She's ultimately training to run and finish her first 100k trail race along with getting stronger, losing fat, and improve her energy levels and sleep patterns.
Mary's personal assessment revealed some weaknesses between right leg and left leg which could ultimately be an issue for running patterns and staying injury free. Corrective exercises in her program will allow her to address these discrepancies. She also showed to be much stronger in front loaded/knee bending exercises in comparison to hip hinging/posterior exercises. Making sure her hamstrings and glutes develop will be a priority within her strength program.
Predictably, Mary is much stronger aerobically than anaerobically. Her background in distance running proves to be much more developed than her high energy output aerobic system. Getting her stronger will allow her to produce more power which will help when running the hills on her trail runs.
We've mapped out Mary's training plan over the course of the next month. We'll be sharing Mary's results to her training plan on a monthly basis. You'll be able to get insight into her body fat percentage, strength gains, and how she is feeling during the course of her training plan as she approaches running her first ever 100k race!
We'll check back in soon... See you then!
