Individualized Training Calendars in Training Peaks
As mentioned before, we will be using the Training Peaks website this season in-order to individualize training plans for all athletes on the team. Every other week, your individualized training plan will be updated so that you know what that 14 day block of training will look like for you.
If you have not set up a Training Peaks account yet please check your email this week for the directions in order to do so. If you did not receive the email please contact me at email@example.com and I will send you the registration information
How Should You be Using Training Peaks?
There are a few things that we are asking every member of the TEAM to do with Training Peaks. Before coming to practice each day, take a look at your individualized training plan in your Training Peaks calendar for that day. After each run take 30 seconds (literally) to go into your Training Peaks calendar on either your phone, or computer. Type in how far you ran that day, and at what pace. There are a lot of other options in Training Peaks that you can play around with, and additional information you can add if you choose to do so. However, Selle and I are only asking that you log your daily mileage and pace. The rest is optional.
