Very Short Example of Why I Have (and Need) a Coach

Email exchange  March 11, 2011
Background: I have run (run/walked) 7 times in the last few weeks following a 10 week injury layoff and am up to 10 min jog intervals with 1 min walk breaks.  I'm getting the spring race itch.
Me: I suppose a 5k on March 26 in Radford wouldn't be prudent, would it?
Coach: You suppose correctly!  Good try though, you get points for asking at least.

This is one of the many benefits of building a relationship with a great coach.  The first race for me is, and remains, Smith Mountain Lake Sprint Tri, May 7.
