Subject: LOOKING FOR AN ONLINE COACH
I have been doing triathlon for just over a year now, and have managed to finish a 70.3, Abu Dhabi short Distance and a 140.6 in that time. (plus some random individual disciplined races)

I have a race scheudle in mind for the next 18 months or so including a couple of OD, Abu Dhabi Short, 70.3 and 140.6.

I used the free plans on here before but am lost in training when I don't have a schedule and want something more specific to me now to improve.

Any advise on decent online coaches? Someone qualified who I send my details to (splits, times, strengths, weaknesses, goals) and then they send me a monthly training schedule and then give me feedback and reassess? Well something like that anyway.

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Simon

There is online coaching available here on BT at what seems to be a reasonable cost. Have not used it myself, but its probably worth looking into.

I might have a contact for you. Her name is Maleia Tumolo and she does online training through Training Peaks and for www.PRSfit.com. She normally charges $175 a month, but since I did a swim clinic with her she's offering a special rate of $100 a month for half ironman, marathon, or full ironman distance training. She can be reached at trainer2u@ec.rr.com. or online at prsfit.com.

I've only worked with her for swimming (group coaching) but had a really good experience. She certainly knows her stuff.

Hi Simon,

I'm an online coach. While I have clients in town, most of my clients are out of town.

I have coached athletes to sprints, Olympics, HIM's and IM's. I myself have competed at all those distances as well.

If you want to read my bio and look at my race history, check out my website: www.athletemaker.com. I also have 3 of my athletes highlighted on my website as well. All 3 are more than willing to give a referral.

I create a weekly schedule and upload it through Training Peaks. While I create a calendar with your races, and then put build/recovery weeks on that calendar as well as overall volume, I don't upload it all at once. What I have learned in the past 3 years is that things change, and creating a weekly training plan is best way for a coach to be responsive to those changes.

With me you get unlimited changes to your training plan, unlimited contact, no start up fees, and a customized training plan created from scratch. In fact, I use very few pre-made workouts that I have saved in Training Peaks (most coaches use pre-made workouts and just drag/drop), instead I usually write 75% of weekly training plans from scratch. So it is very customized.

My fees are $125 a month.

If you are interested, want to ask me questions, talk to my referrals, etc. feel free to email me at: Karen@athletemaker.com

Hope I can help you out! If not, I wish you the best in finding a coach that works for you!

Thanks!

I have pedals with the cage and when I ride 2+ hours my legs feel much more tired then if I took out my husband's bike with clipless pedals. Do clipless pedals truly make the difference?
