Joe Mallicoat a OTGF Remote Coaching client was shooting for a 1:50 half marathon at The Rain Run. He ended the day with a 1:42 half marathon. Beating his goal time by 8 minutes!
The back story is that Joe went to Mexico for a week a little over a month before this race. As soon as he returned to the damp Northwest, he came down with what was probably undiagnosed pneumonia.
I worked very closely with Joe during this time. He was bound and determined to run this 13.1. I set out to skillfully ensure that first we were not doing anything in his training to set him back, but also to carefully manipulate his training variables to allow him to have enough strength, speed and conditioning to set him up for a good performance. It all came together with a fantastic performance.
Onto the next goal!
