hey! Nathan here,
“For me, running does not have to be all about the times and places. It’s about the process, your attitude and staying positive and keeping your head in check. To be able to enjoy a race or running is the most important thing to me. This manifests itself in my coaching style from building confidence from the start. A holistic approach by getting to know the athlete and what makes them tick and formulating a specific and supportive program from there. My 12 years in teaching fundamenmentally was led by empowering students and building confidence to encourage long term involvement. This is led by working on clear reasons why so people have more chance of success. This helps to maintain motivation. It is specific through thorough preparation formulating methods for anticipating and confronting minefields and developing strategies for forever changing circumstances. Goal setting is vital in all of this in its many forms and is crucial for long term running focus and enjoyment. It is about the athlete today, tomorrow but also the years to come. The process is as important as the goal itself.’
