How do I access my training plan?
All plans are created and hosted on Training Peaks. You will be asked to register an account, or I can do this on your behalf.
What is Training Peaks?
Simply put, it’s an online service designed for coaches and athletes. It allows coaches (me) to create workouts for athletes (you). It’s a totally free service – it won’t cost you a penny.
Once you’ve activated your Training Peaks account, you can view your training schedule – through either the desktop or app version – plus you’ll also receive email reminders of upcoming workouts.
Do I need to use Training Peaks?
It’s the most efficient way for me to develop custom training plans and for you to access them.
The biggest benefit of Training Peaks is that it syncs workouts automatically to your watch. All you need to do is connect your device to your Training Peaks account, then any workout I create for you will appear on your watch. You don’t need to look at a spreadsheet or try and remember what you’re meant to be doing before heading out the door.
A list of compatible devices and apps can be found here.
Another good thing is when you finish your run, it automatically uploads the data for me to view and will assist me to ensure you’re making good progress.
Can I just use Training Peaks to view my plan?
Sure. Just log in, go to your calendar and you’ll see what’s on your schedule. Alternatively, you should also receive regular emails detailing the next day’s workout.
