Imeh and I have experience crafting several MS and HS Leaders and also working with athletes competing at a national and international level. We created this to allow more athletes to have access to quality training and to remove a lot of guesswork from the equation when it comes to how to train, how much to train, how to prepare for a race, etc.
This plan is for any NICA Middle School athlete looking to make the best of their season with workouts tailored to the races and to the individual athlete. This is also a useful tool for NICA coaches to have everyone follow a structured plan and to know you don't have to do research to coach the athletes.
(Note to follow: I highly advise that middle school athletes, who are already accustomed to training and looking to step up to the next level and compete on the National Team or race in Europe one day, direct message us for personal coaching. It allows for more opportunities and also for higher level training through measuring fatigue and allowing more volume to be added if needed or desired. If you haven't trained before, but want to still shoot for that level, then follow the program for a couple months and message us if you want to get more serious.)
This plan makes it as easy as looking at the calendar and completing the workout. No guesswork, no doubts. You know you will be working effectively to increase your fitness through targeted, precise workouts and also recovering enough for peak race-day performance.
This specific block is designed to maximize Race Day Performance be shifting the sequence of workouts and recovery patterns from THREE WEEKS OUT. It dramatically reduces acute fatigue and allows for a spike in fitness and adaptions around the specifics of the race, specificity. By increasing specific fitness and decreasing fatigue, you'll be as likely as possible to have a breakthrough race day.
Use this block only for State Championship and for Nationals. Time off is necessary after this, at least 1 week.
HAVING A HEART RATE MONITOR WOULD HELP; HOWEVER, IT IS NOT NECESSARY. You can absolutely complete the plan working by perceived exertion.
We have a gift for those who complete the challenge with a 93% Completion Rate (A, A+), so reach out on IG @imperiumcoaching when your done with the challenge to claim the prize!
