Looking for a Coach

I have been looking at getting a coach for next season. Why you might ask?? Because I am going to do my FIRST Ironman!!! Yes I said it. Im getting a little crazy over here...but I think Im ready to take it to the next level if Syracuse 70.3 goes well which Im sure it will!!

I have been debating this for a few months now and cannot think of any reason not to!!!

Heres some things I am looking in a coach (and I do have a few Im looking into at the moment!!):

1. They have to be accessable. I do not want to wait 3-4 days for answers or feedback

2. Someone with solid credentials. Someone that is a triathlete themselves and has been coaching for at least a few years.

3. A tailored plan for me,myself and I.

4. Someone that can adjust training if I get sick, or injured, or miss a workout

5. Someone that is going to provide Structure, motivation and success!!!

An effective way to stay motivated and to develop a solid training plan is to hire a coach. All the pros and elite triathletes do!! Why not the age groupers too?!!!
