All participants receive personalized training plans geared towards their goal race. Participants submit an athlete survey so an MTP coach can review their recent training/racing history, goals, etc. before customizing their training.
Training plans are published to each participant’s VDOT O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training via mobile, the web and via a PDF copy of your program. VDOT O2 also syncs with GPS so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. Your MTP coach will help manage your calendar, which will also include recommendations on cross training strength, mobility exercises and nutrition, etc.
Each participant is assigned a “group coach” to guide them through the training program. Participants receive a coaching invite so their assigned coach can manage their training calendar. Coaches leave comments, feedback and are available by email to help motivate and make adjustments to participants’ training along the way.
Coached practices occur every Wednesday evening at 7pm starting from Columbus Circle. Practice instructions and location are always emailed on Sunday evening.
