‘Developing and monitoring training demands to improve your performance’
Ian Freeman Professional Doctorate: Sport Coaching
You may be training to improve your performance in a specific event such as 5k, half marathon, marathon, ultra, or competing in the various multi-sport distances, but how do you know if you are doing the right training to improve? We end our winter series of workshops, exploring how we can develop and monitor our training to improve our racing performance in our chosen event.
We are fortunate to have sport physiologist and internationally renowned coach / athlete developer, Ian Freeman joining Hares for an evening, to answer questions about your training. Ian is a much sought after speaker internationally, having worked with many elite level coaches, Iron-Man athletes, team sport players and Olympic gold medal winning athletes. He has also written and developed many athlete development frameworks for sport national governing bodies, guiding coaches working with groups and individuals to deliver progressive, long term athlete development for competitors of all levels.
Therefore, if you want to know something specific about your training, or still unsure what thresholds are, how to work them out and how to use that information, or maybe needing help to develop a specific training programme of your own, this free online workshop could be perfect for you.
