Coaching subscription

Hi Coaches,

I think I’m a good candidate for the coaching subscription, but before I decide to sign up, I’ve got a couple of questions:

  1. What is typically involved in the monthly data review offered by the subscription?
  2. How does the data review inform your changes/adaptations to the existing plan?

I’ve been following the 12-week CX Sweet spot plan at 95% adherence for the past 10 weeks, so I’m trying to figure out the value of the coaching service vs. simply adjusting the plan myself.

I ask because I already have the premium version of TrainingPeaks, and I’m comfortable moving workouts around, ect…but I have an upcoming travel commitment for work that will prevent me from #FTFPing during the final build week of my sweet spot program.

I want to effectively balance my desire to hit the CTL goal designed by the program with recovering properly during a very busy week at work.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Mitch!

To clarify - we do not review your power data. What we do is analyze your power data in reference to the question(s) you post to the forum. Science based answers, so to speak.

For example if you ask a question about what you should do sweet spot or intervals, we’ll look at your PMC chart in TrainingPeaks and evaluate your training load, look at how well you are FtFP’ing and answer based on what your data is telling us.

Same way if the question is about a particular workout - we’ll analyze the power data to help us answer again from the ‘science’ / data.

And per your travel commitment coming up - we’ll help you revise accordingly and still hit your goals. I can already tell you if you are still cx summer sweet spottin’ and your season starts in September you are on the wrong plan. You want to be on the Six weeks till cx plan (presuming your season starts mid September)

We won’t review your data and revise your plan unless prompted by you - very important. So you still gotta FtFP and do your best and most importantly ASK Questions :slight_smile:

Thanks for the quick response.

The advice I received from my question in the forum back in May was to complete the 12 week SS plan (with running and cx drills included once per week) on Aug 18th, then a rest week, before switching to cx intervals, as my priority races aren’t until first week of October.

My CTL is 80 right now (33 points higher than same time last year!)

Are you recommending that I forgo the remaining 2 weeks of build (which would take me to 92CTL), and start Six Weeks Till CX right now?

Thank you,

Yes, but when does your season start? In six weeks or less? Then our Six weeks till CX plan.

Not sure what 12 week plan you are referring to since our plans are six weeks unless you are talking about the 18 weeks of sweet spot?

I’m on the “CX Off Season 24 week Plan : CX Resistance Training + 12 weeks of Sweet Spot, Advanced.” The plan ends in a 902 TSS week, which is massive for me–and why I was concerned about balancing recovery.

My first CX race of the season is in 7 weeks.

Yea, you need to get on our Six Weeks till Cross Plan

that we describe here:

I signed up for the coaching subscription last night and got to the payment confirmation page that said I would get a couple of emails. I never got the emails. I don’t think the payment went though either. Should I try the sign up process again? I just wanted to check first to make sure I don’t sign up twice.

To get started add as your “Coach” in your TrainingPeaks account under Account > Coaches - its as easy as steps 1 > 2 > 3

@FRANK I don’t seem to have access to the Members Only Forum yet. Is there anything else I should do to gain access?

Try again - I added you manually in the backend, let us know!

@FRANK Still no luck with the members only forum. I appreciate the quick replies though!

Hey there @msande43 did you purchase a Coaching Subscription?

That’s what you need to have access to the members only forum :slight_smile:

For all other areas of the forum, use your fasct username and p-word to log in, thanks!

@FRANK I did purchase the coaching subscription but there may have been an error when it went through.

The charge went through on my card. Could it be I used the 25podcast code for the first month? The charge went through for $29.25 for the first month and then said it would bill monthly at $39.99.

For a few hours in my Fascat account the subscription said processing. But now there is not record under subscription.

Hi - I don’t think your order went thru bc the last order and sales receipt purchase I see from the email []

was from June 17th… Try again?! Could it be you purchased under a different email? That could be the cause of the error.

Try now - looks like you ordered your subscription with a diff email and judging by that it was a typo

@FRANK wow! I guess I was too focused on #FTFPing to type in my email correctly. Atheist we know the error.

I have it a couple of days to see what would happen but I still have no access to the locked forums. Should I try signing up again?

Sorry for the back and forth on this. Go ahead and try again. I added some things to your account.

@Isaiah Thank you! I am in!
