Recommended Read Steve Magness Article On Why Distance Runners Need A Coach Humans are famous for being bad at predicting their own behavior. “I strongly believe in having a coach. It’s not so much for the training, though that is important, it’s for the outside observation. I always say, a coaches job at the elite level is to hold the reigns. It’s not so much to motivate or poke and prod to get through a workout; instead it’s to prevent smart people from making dumb mistakes.”
