Team UltraLadies Coaching

Team UltraLadies Coaching (ULC) is a program that specializes in the development of the distance runner. ULC is designed for runners who are training for long distance events, including marathons and ultra marathons. Don’t let the name fool you; UltraLadies Coaching is for UltraLadiesMen too!

ULC partners with you to help develop and achieve your personal running goals whether to finish your first ultra marathon or to improve your performance at a particular distance. The program provides the fundamentals of endurance training while understanding that successful distance running incorporates psychological components that may hinder or enhance physical performance. ULC will address base training and build up for events, strength and speed development, cross training, pacing and race tactics, and the recovery period. An important component of Nancy’s coaching style is to develop strategies for empowering you to become the athlete you were meant to be.

ULC includes:
~ Runner Assessment
~ Sports Psychology
~ Goal Setting (short term and long term)
~ Weekly Evaluations of Training Results
~ Training Plan Development
~ Post-Event Assessment
~ Training and Racing Strategies
~ Recovery Plan
