Pushed in ways I hadn’t been pushed before
Steve set me specific mileage weekly including a plethora of different sessions. I was pushed in ways I hadn’t been pushed before with intervals, thresholds, long runs and recovery. Steve updated my plan weekly and was always on the other end of the phone/text when needed. I liked the style in his training and with each session it would say “Be disciplined”, “Be courageous” and “Be patient” which added context. He also offered a mental strategy for the race which is something I believe in. Working with Steve definitely pushed me which is what you need when working with a coach – I ended up with 2 PB’s over a half and full marathon.
