In this episode, Lucho and Tawnee go into detail about coach-athlete relationships based on their more than three decades of combined experience.

  • Getting the most from a coach-athlete relationship.
  • We describe how we do it in our own personal coaching practices and what we have found that works, including a good rhythm, communication, expectations, needs, goals, and so on.
  • Long-term athletes–what it is like to coach someone for 14-19 years (we each have had athletes for that long!) and how this relationship between coach and athlete evolves over time.
  • Short-term athletes—when someone comes to you with specific goals and a shorter-duration relationship.
  • When athletes take downtime for an extended period without specific goals, and how coaching evolves during those times.
  • How we as coaches have changed, inevitably, over time and how this affects our athletes (hopefully for the better).
  • And many more personal stories from two long-time endurance coaches!
