Phil Mosley

MyProCoach™

I have 20 years experience of helping amateur athletes surpass their goals, while still making sure they have quality time available for family, friends and career. As a parent who works for a living, I know how challenging this can be.

My training plans are intelligently designed around a typical work week. I set proven, time-efficient workouts in mid-week, with longer aerobic workouts at the weekends. This gives you the structure and consistency you need to continually improve.

Sample Day 1

0:25:00
41.6TSS
Fitness Test: Threshold Pace and HR

This fitness test helps you to set your pace and heart rate training zones and thresholds for Training Peaks. 

Warm Up: 
5 mins in Z1-Z2 (easy/steady).

Main Set: 
Run/jog/walk for 20 mins at the fastest pace you can maintain for the duration. Record your average pace and ideally average heart rate too. 

Warm Down:
Get warm or dry clothes on and walk for 5 mins. Optional gentle stretching session after.

Sample Day 2

0:40:00
