This is what’s been on my mind lately:
I am a mother of four who enjoys to run. I am not a future Olympian chasing a gold medal. It has always seemed a little silly to me that I (not anyone else) get a running coach, but the more I run around and the more runners I meet, the more I realize how common it is.
I have been chasing a PR for 3 years. At what point do I surrender? Do I really NEED a coach? You’d think with all the reading I’ve done and with 8 years of marathon running experience I have that I’d have a PR (since baby number 4) in the bag by now.
I know exactly where I’m lacking and what I need to work on. Yet, it remains.
What do you think?
Can I do this on my own?
