The success of an athlete-coach relationship really comes down to one thing – communication. The more we communicate, through the Final Surge app, weekly emails, and phone calls, the more honest we can be with each other and the more effective the entire program will be. I spend a lot of time talking to my athletes, because I want to know how you’re feeling so that I can adjust the training and workouts to meet your needs each and every week. You’ll be amazed, but merely having an “outside party” that is listening and interested in your running life will also make you become more self-reflective and accountable to yourself. Through our partnership we’ll both learn and grow along the way.
