Endurance events are not simply turn up on the race day and it’s you vs the course. Great performances are built on the back of great planning and training, with a support system in place.

Having the backing of the right coach in your corner can make all the difference come race day. Training for a specific event comes with its each individual complexities, Endurance State Training takes care of it so that you can perform at your best at your target events.

"More than just a training plan..."

ENDURANCE STATE COACHING METHODOLOGY

The training and guidance provided by Endurance State Coaching was formed over 10 years of successes and failures, highs and lows of endurance and long distance running events. There are avoidable mistakes I can ensure you sidestep, whilst all the training guidance you will undertake is backed by endurance-based science.

Anything can be achieved with the right balance in life, I can ensure you keep focused on all aspects of your endurance based challenge whilst fitting around your current circumstances. The ability to endure the hardships in any given event requires the focus and confidence built from a specifically, tailored training plan that works for you and on your schedule. Additionally, it helps to have a coach 100% invested in every aspect of your training, from your nutrition, racing strategy and complementary strength and mobility work, whilst also being available for a chat and talk through your plan at anytime. 

By becoming an Endurance State coached runner, I can help you answer questions such as “How much training do I need to do for my ultramarathon?”, “what kind of training should I do for my endurance race?”, “How can I progress to the next level?”, “How do I pace my race?” and many more. I can also help you choose events to target and train for if you’re unsure about which races suit your current fitness level.  

The 3 Endurance State Training Principles

IGNITE THE IDENTITY

IGNITE THE IDENTITY

An initial consultation and understanding of your goals will take place to fully understand you, the runner. We all have our strong points, and we all have a running desire that makes us tick. A plan will be put in place to fully get the best out of you and perform the best of your ability. 

BRILLIANCE THROUGH BALANCE

BRILLIANCE THROUGH BALANCE

It’s an age old saying, but consistency is key… and to be consistent, the homeostasis of your regular life, training, day to day stresses must be kept in balance. You’ll be kept on track with continuous feedback on your training, adjusting as needed to ensure you hit your goals.

EXCELLENCE OF EXECUTION

EXCELLENCE OF EXECUTION

For racing goals to be a success, all the variables and race day surprises have to be considered. You’ll be prepared both mentally and physically for the event throughout your training, whilst the key race logistics (pacing, gear and nutritional considerations) will be advised too.
