I just came back from stress fracture injury from August 2015. It was really hard and stressful for me to start up running again. Three weeks ago, I found Coach Ken and he has been coaching and helping me addressing all my problems and concerns regarding the injury, he will coach and send me the stretching, workouts schedules and exercises, how to go back to running. My pace has been improved, my feeling has been better about running, he will be so patient to answer all my questions and concerns like I am having a personal coach, has been encouraging me to do all the workout and the details he provides me with specific workout every day has been making my runs feel so relax, so I can have more fun doing what I love in so many things. Coach Ken will coach me fulfilling my Boston Marathon dream and I want the running to be a nature for me, with Coach Ken's help, I am looking forward to continue half/marathons journey as your runner for many more years to come :).
Update. February 4th, 2016
Since i was being coached online by Coach Ken, with all the training schedules, workouts, exercises and drills, i have managed to increase my pace over 1-2 min mile during the month. Coach Ken is really helpful and very encouraging and took me only a month to resume to this pace and Coach Ken helps me increasing my fitness, HR has been getting lower and pace is getting better, My shin pain had been decreased and went away. Coach Ken is always answering all my questions, as always. I will be ready for the Clovis Half Marathon in February and Paso Robles Half in March with Coach Ken helps, at April 18 I will be facing the Boston Marathon. Thank you again Coach Ken.
Update March 5th, 2016 :
Coach Ken had helped improved my fitness and endurance and also strength overall to make sure I was prepared for the Boston Marathon. With his coaching, i'd be able to run 24 miles a day and felt good and strong the whole way at Clovis Half. My pace has been improved faster in 2 months after 3 months of injury/off running. When i was starting again, i would run between 9.30-10 min pace for 2 hours/12 miles, with Coach Ken Coaching I'd be able to run again at 8 min pace for 13 miles and 8.20 min pace for 24 miles. Thank you again Coach Ken. He also has helped me to decrease my injury and help me with injury prevention with exercises and drills. Even though it's an online coaching, Coach Ken always answers my questions and concerns about the running. I feel good about the training and running now. I think I am ready anytime for the marathon now. It's really a short period time of training for Boston, but I believe in Coach Ken's coaching and help, will get me thru the Boston comfortably and confidently for me to finishing it. Thank you again Coach Ken :)
