About Phil Mosley

He founded MyProCoach in 2010 to to offer the world’s most comprehensive range of online training plans, all designed to help you enjoy the same success that himself and his athletes have, while still making sure you have quality time for your family, friends and career.

Marathon Training Plans

We use TrainingPeaks to deliver your plan – the world’s most popular endurance coaching platform. Free to use, TrainingPeaks is an online calendar that lets you record, track and analyze your training sessions. 

It has a host of great features allowing you to get as in-depth as you like, including the ability to export your workouts to your training devices (Garmin, TrainerRoad etc) and follow them in real time. 

TrainingPeaks enables us to set you in-depth training plans in a way that other formats cannot. Phil Mosley is a Certified Coach and one of the best-selling coaches on the platform.

We want to provide an affordable and effective training solution, including email coach support for any questions you may have.

Our Certified coaching team are on hand to answer any questions during the first use of your plan, plus a bonus 3 months after its completion. During checkout, please also share your email so I can send you a series of 5 helpful emails to get you started.

As you can understand, some limits apply, like personalisation or analysis of your training, but for anything else relevant to your plan, we would love to help. You also have full access to our online help centre, with videos and articles to help you train effectively.

We have a huge range of plans that enables you to select one that best meets your goals, schedule and ability. If you’re not sure where to start, read on below for a quick overview.

What type?
Our Standard and Masters plans are designed to get you ready for your target event, while our Off-Season plans are designed to allow you to recover from a tough season whilst maintaining your well-earned fitness. Generally, Masters plans are designed for athletes over 40 years old, although plenty of younger athletes love them too. The workouts are just as tough as with our standard training plans, but with more scheduled recovery days. And more strength and conditioning work, so you stay strong and flexible. Some find it easy to carry on with a normal training load, while others need to change their approach to training.

What length?
For the best outcome, count back from your “A” target race date and simply choose a plan to fill that gap (you can still work in other, smaller races during your plan). Note that longer plans start easier and progress more gradually than shorter plans. The body responds best to constant, gradual progression with regular recovery periods, and that’s exactly what our plans are designed to give you!

What level?
Choosing the correct level will help you get the most out of your plan. Generally, if you’ve never done this event before or currently train up to a few times per week, you might consider a Beginner plan. Alternatively, if you’ve done this event many times before or currently train 5+ times a week, you might consider an Advanced plan.

But don’t worry too much – we also let you swap the level for free within 14 days of purchase, if you find it too easy/hard!

Visit the MyProCoach Help Center for further guidance and to contact our Certified coaching team.

Certainly! Our training plans allow you to easily swap a few days around each week to suit your availability. Or you can swap out a session, to attend a similar group workout instead. That’s fine. If you opt for Training Peaks Premium (from $9.92 per month) you can even drag & drop your workouts onto different days. We give a few recommendations on how to best do this in our help centre.

And you can also train for multiple events! Our training plans guide you up to your target “A” race, but it’s also good to include some “B or C” races along the way. Our help centre goes through the exact steps you should take to enable you to get full benefit, without detracting from your key focus.

    I will never again train without a plan! First I want to thank you for creating this plan! Really helped me to train consistently. (i find that one of the best things about good structured plans is that I have fewer excuses and I do workouts consistently.)

    When I trained without a plan, I was skipping workouts and...

    I just ran the Berlin Marathon in 4:36 using the Phil Mosely 12-week Intermediate Marathon plan. I followed every instruction to the T and I surprised myself with a strong and satisfactory performance (my prior two marathons I finished above 5 hours without a training plan).

    I keep using Phils plans Hard to beat if you're looking for a cost-effective, structured plan, in TrainingPeaks. I've used 3 now (1/2 and full). All are similar so it does feel repetitive at times, but hey, he has so many he has to replicate the formula.

    My first training plan and 10K race preparation. This was the first time when I used a training plan - Phil's Beginner 10K Plan: 8 weeks. My first 10K race will be on 21/01/2020. I followed all the steps determined by the plan. It was totally clear and very helpful. Of course, I'm a little bit nervous about... >> read more

    Marathon Success I ran the Dublin marathon yesterday in a time of 3:19:54, beating my goal of a sub 3:30. Thank you for all your help along the way, there is no chance I'd have done that well without the program and your advice.

    Half Marathon, October 2019

    An amazing and manageable plan that took 4 mins off my half marathon PB... fantastic!! Having done a few halfs, tris, and a marathon before, this time I wanted to beat my PB but knew I would struggle to fit more than 4 sessions a week on top of a hectic work/family life. Phil suggested the beginner plan simply for number of sessions, and it... >> read more
