Changing goals from sub 3:30 marathons to first Comrades - We help Helen put a plan in place for Comrades

Helen Squirrell is a member of our CoachParry Online Training Club and has been on one of our sub 3:30 marathon programs, she managed to get a substitution entry to Comrades and has decided to take the plunge into doing the Big C this year. Markus gives her some advice on how to adjust her paces and training from the marathon to Comrades training. 

Helen lives in Clarens which is at a high altitude and is very hilly and so they also discuss some ideas around adjusting training for altitude, hills and time trials not on flat routes. Markus also gives some great advice on how to adjust training programs when you do training on both road and trail to ensure you are still getting in enough mileage. 

Brad also shares another Success Story from another member in our community who has previously been on one of our podcasts, so be sure to tune in to that for some extra inspiration!

Australia to Comrades - We help Trevor with his Comrades preparations

This week on RUN with CoachParry, we chat to one of our international members of the Online CoachParry Training Club - Trevor Smith. We've been helping Trevor on his road to his back2back Comrades medal and today's episode Markus and Trevor chat a little more detail on a few questions for an athlete training overseas coming to run a race in South Africa. 

Markus and Trevor talk about strength work and how to progress the program specific to Comrades, as well as how to do proper hill training in Australia where they dont have the luxury of hills like we do in SA. As a result much of Trevor's training is done on trail and so Markus guides him how to adjust these runs specific to a road program.

If you're interested in the concept of "training slow to become fast" (polarized training) - the concept Markus was referring to in this chat - be sure to check out this lecture from one of the world leading sport scientists in endurance sports and polarized training in particular - Dr Stephen Seiler. Members of the CoachParry coaching team have had the privilege of being able to spend some time with Dr Seiler on 2 of his trips to SA.
