WHAT MAKES MILE 27 DIFFERENT?
TRAINING WITH POWER
Mile 27 is one of only a handful of coaches worldwide that uses power for trail and ultra training. It allows far more precise prescription of training and racing intensity and measurement of training loads which means better results . For more information on training with power see here
Mile 27 doesn’t believe in mapping out long term running programs since it is impossible to predict how you will feel next week let alone in 10 weeks time. Your program is mapped out one week in advance based on the feedback you give from the previous week. This means the program can be adjusted every week to ensure you maximise the training effect and minimise the injury risk.
There are no limits on how often you can call, email or Skype to seek advice. Mile 27 is committed to helping you achieve the results you are after and doesn’t place limits on the contact time with your coach.
SPECIALISES IN TRAIL, MARATHON AND ULTRA RUNNING
The demands in trail, marathon and ultra running are completely different to that of shorter road races. Specific training for the course, nutritional strategies, equipment choices and mental strategies are all an essential part of training. Only someone who has experience in completing these types of races can effectively coach someone to do the same. Andy from Mile 27 is an elite ultra runner and has represented Australia in the World Trail Challenge and won a number of 100 mile races so fully understands what it takes to compete successfully. For more information about Andy see here.
Mile 27 is the only online running coach to use video assessment to assess the biomechanics of each runner. This makes it possible to create a personalised dynamic strength and conditioning, core and flexibility program specifically for running.
STRENGTHENING EXERCISES SPECIFIC FOR RUNNERS
Unlike many other strengthening programs available the programs designed by Mile 27 are the most running-specific strengthening routines on the market today. If your exercises aren’t performed standing up and in a dynamic manner then they aren’t specific to running.
CORE TRAINING SPECIFIC TO RUNNERS
Almost all of the exercises you will find on the internet (such as the plank, side plank, sit ups etc) AREN’T EFFECTIVE FOR RUNNERS. Study after study shows that typical core training exercises don’t improve performance and don’t reduce risk of injury. Mile 27 uses vertical three dimensional dynamic core training exercises to target the runners core specifically for running. For more information on core training for runners read the articles here.
