Anyone out here a marathon runner? I signed up for my first marathon, and I’m curious about training while traveling. Also considering hiring an online coach. Thoughts?

Online coach def helps. They can come up with creative workouts during travel that are more speed focused and distance focused on the weekends. I’d highly recommend it

Can I ask who you used? I’m trying to find an online coach now!

Good for you!! I’d agree w getting an online coach, and also keep in mind that cross-training is incredibly helpful. As long as you get your long runs in each week (I did mine on the weekends or broken up in the am/pm) you’ll be good.

Doing my third marathon in April - training on the road is really tough. Be sure to schedule all of your runs and stay extra hydrated to stay on track during travel projects.

Did my first last March 2018. You can prob find a training group in your travel city. I did all my long runs on the weekend but you will want to do medium runs during the week at least too. Good luck!

I also run distance and have a running coach who gives me my weekly workouts, including 10-20 minutes of daily strength. With travel, this has really made the difference since it’s one less thing to plan and think about

I (first year) need the crowds view: “Big deal” partner emails 2 partners (me cc’d) asking for a call. Having had trouble with the conference line, I send around a zoom link. The call starts, the 2 partners and I are on zoom. “big deal” partner calls me, yells that zoom link isn’t working, berates me, opens a conference line, tells me off in front of the other partners (I “wasted their time”). Is his behaviour warranted?

Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
