    Has anyone ever tried online marathon coaching and found it productive?

    I was scrolling through Greg McMillan's site and am curious since I have always found his articles very useful.

    He claims to offer a custom tailored program instead of generic ones I have used in the past.

    would you really need it with all your experience now?
    i recently had a friend of a friend who trains runners and offered to
    give me program over the internet , through emails, chat etc.
    didn't work. Problem with that kind of support is the inability we often have to formulate our thoughts clearly and concisely.So the trainer gives an advice and the athlete understands something different and reports results in a way that the trainer understands something different ... ends up like a Babel's sport tower.
