I'm struggling with the need for a coach this early. I'm still working on my fundamentals. I have a great personal trainer (Nicole) that I work out with three times a week. We concentrate on weight training and overall muscle conditioning.
I also have an awesome support group for my swim, bike, and run workouts. I know I will eventually need a coach especially as we get closer to race season, but do I really need a Tri coach now?
I have so many questions going through my brain! UGH!
Hi Laura: If you're serious about wanting a tri coach, you should consider Matt Giunta (www.blueshiftmultisport.com) - he's my hero! Our stories are not that different and Matt's coaching has made the world of difference to me. I've gone from struggling to run 5K to happily running a half marathon in just 1 year of training with Matt. I completed my first Oly distance tri last year, and I'm planning to do a marathon and two HIM races in 2010. Matt always gives me a lot of sound advice and is the nicest, most supportive person I know. Give me a shout if you want to hear more.ReplyDelete
