We therefore ask you to trust your program and your coach since the program you have is designed for your available time, races and goals. Your PRO Coach will happily discuss with you what sessions are available to you locally and that fit with the logistics of your life. Whenever possible, they will fit these in to your program. However, your physiology might be better served doing workouts specific to your needs. Your coach will advise on this. It’s important to remember that even in a group environment, you should strive to do what’s right for you and stay in your correct training zones.
