I first met Greg McMillan when he joined Road Runner Sports the company I worked for. Greg was a runner, researcher and a writer and RRS had purchased A highly technical running news letter called Peak Running Performance. RRS brought Greg in to do the writing, editing and to grow the readership. It was here where we became friends. Soon though his coaching skills took over and he began his career as one of the best running coaches on the planet.
He started McMillan Running as one of the first on line coaching platforms for runners. Today his website is the #1 Run coaching website. From personal one on one, to on line training programs to the most comprehensive free content his website does it all.
This brings me to the reason for the post. You can decide if you need a running coach and if you really do I suggest you visit this website and sign up. But most runners don't use a coach are are self coached. Triathletes too! And most are doing it wrong. Most people go too easy on the hard days and too hard on the easy days. And this is where the #1 tool for runners on the web comes it, the McMillan Calculator. All you need to use the calculator is a current race time. Plug that time into the calculator then put in your your goal race distance and the time you want to run. The Calculator will give you the pace you should run for every type of run. Making sure you don't run too hard on easy days and too easy on hard days. You will get faster.
If you really want to use the Calculator to better serve you but you're not ready for a full on coach, sign up for McMillan Pro. You spend more on coffee in a week that you will spend monthly with McMillan Pro. Here you get access to richer content on the calculator and great how too videos from my Friend Greg.
Bottom line, if you want to improve your running, start with the McMillan Calculator and be true to yourself in your running.
It's a good life…..
