Welcome! Complete these steps before we start.
Get your Training Accounts Connected/Synced
- Establish a TrainingPeaks account and connect it to my coaching account.
- Follow this link to establish a connection between your account and mine. https://home.trainingpeaks.com/attachtocoach?sharedKey=KUSWJMHCRR736
I will be posting all workouts and be reviewing your workouts through TrainingPeaks. You do not need a premium subscription to participate in the program. A free subscription is perfectly functional for receiving & uploading workouts
Once our accounts are connected, you should expect your TrainingPeaks calendar to begin to populate. I typically load workouts in blocks 3-4 weeks so you can look ahead. You will receive a daily email with your assigned workouts.
- Establish a sync between TrainingPeaks & your Garmin/Polar/Other device.
- Here is a useful links to get this established: https://www.trainingpeaks.com/upload/
This will automate the upload & down of workouts to your head unit/watch etc.

The Discord server is for rapid communications to athletes, training session cancellations, and many other notifications. The server is a private community and a resource for all athletes with presentations and other helpful resources. Athletes use the server to coordinate with each other as well. Running late?

Let’s do this!
- Make notes in your TrainingPeaks calendar. I do review these points. I will not always respond. Should I see anything of concern, I will be sure to respond. Making notes is very important because it allows us both to review your comments historically to pick up on trends, fatigue, injuries, etc.
- Do text me on my cell for quick questions that require rapid response.
- Email me for questions that need a more comprehensive response and can afford a little time for a response. I typically respond by the next business day.
Practice starts on time. Cancelations will be announced through Discord.
