MX Endurance has partnered with Today's Plan to provide our members with a state-of-the-art training platform and to ensure that all of our training plans and sessions are personalised to you at all stages of your training.
The first step to accessing our entire library of MX Endurance plans and sessions is to sign up with Today's Plan.
After you have hit the link you will be required to accept some terms and conditions. Note, if you do not see the MX Endurance branding you are registering for a regular Today's Plan account and will not automatically have access to our training resources.
Using your email to for your account set a password that you will use to log in and out of your account. Pick an email that you use regularly as you will receive emails every day telling you what your session is for the next day. Also select your country and timezone.
You're in! You have created your account. The next step is to personalise your account. Here you can select either metric or imperial and set your weight, age and gender. This information is used for a number of calcualtions and assumptions run by the system and is not publically viewable.
Next up is to select what sort of account suits you best. If you are working with one of our MX Endurance or network coaches select "I have a coach" but for accessing our training resources select "I train myself."
Today's Plan have a great guide to help you get started
Today's Plan personalises all sessions based on your individual zones. This means that each of our training plan and every MX session will show you how YOU should complete the session based on where your fitness and skill levels are. In order for this to work you need to input as much information as you can. If you know your threshold values you can put them into your profile. Alternatively, if you are not sure what your threshold zones are or want to calculate them click here.
As you train and your values improve, Today's Plan will detect these improvements and update your zones.
Now that you are all set up it is time to select your plan. The next screen you will see is your calendar. This is where you will see your weekly training plan and where you can add your MX Endurance training plan. The window on the right hand side of the screen needs to be on 'Plans' and 'Event/Race' should be expanded.
Once you have the list of plans open you simply need to select which plan is the right plan for you. For a detailed look at the breakdown of each training plan you can head to https://mxendurance.com/training-plans to see the structure of each plan. The names on our website should match the training plan you want to use in Today's Plan.
*If for any reason the right hand window is not appearing for you, simply click on the [>] red box that will open the right hand window.
Using an MX Endurance training plan in Today's Plan is as simple as clicking and dragging the plan to the start date of your choice. By default, all of our plans start on a Monday but you can start them on any day of the week you will like. Once you have dropped the plan onto your start date your calendar will auto-populate all of your training sessions.
If you are using one of our plans for a specific event, simply count back the number of weeks from race day. This will ensure that your plan finishes on the day of your race.
Now that you have your plan selected and in place you might want to know how to follow your plan. If you click on any session in your calendar a window containing the description of your workout as well as the zones (depending on what you set) for the workout.
If you didn't set the zones and simply want to know what the structure of the workout is you will find it in the session description.
