The combination of book smarts and the ability to apply that knowledge in order to perform at the highest level is rare indeed. That is why the combined minds of Jessica and Faye will no doubt become one of the best resources in the world of OCR coaching.

Grit Coaching

In episode 101 we introduced Faye and Grit coaching. In this episode, we take a deeper dive in the periodization, the importance and practice of building an aerobic base, transitioning to the aerobic power phase, and finally sport specific training. We also take a deeper look at how gritcoaching.net actually works and how you can get signed up.

Grit Coaching

Jessica is an olympic runner, so she has a unique insight into long term programming. She will handle the running component of the OCR programming. Faye will take on the OCR specific strength work as well as integrate sport specific high intensity workouts later in the season.

This is a dense information packed episode so put your thinking caps on!
