|Bethwell Birgen training with his group in Eldoret|
As a coach, my responsibilities are not as obvious as they appear. I am being entrusted with someone’s life’s goals in running and I would never want to let down anybody who trusts in me and that is why I prefer taking a slow and sure way to success rather than pushing a runner through short and dangerous ways.
There is so much that can be added into a training program; hill workouts, slope repeats, different kinds of fartleks, downhill speed workouts, long and short track intervals, threshold runs, diagonals, tempo runs, easy runs, moderate runs, recovery runs, track repeats, long runs, semi-long runs, etc. However, not all these types of workouts necessarily need to happen all at once, in the same week, or even in the same month.
