Plan Description

2-Week Race Plan (taper) for XC/Marathon MTB - Re-Usable


Written by Cody Waite, Endurance Coach, Professional Endurance Athlete and co-owner of Sessions:6 Sport Performance

My 2-week XC/Marathon/Ultra MTB Race Plan is the final piece of the puzzle for our MTB program. Your best race season ENDS HERE!

This is PART 4 of a 4-part annual plan, that includes a taper and peak into your goal event(s) .


RACE PHASE: This final 2 week plan is set up with one week to 'de-load' and absorb all your training up to this point, followed by race week that includes some sharpening sessions to get you to the start line ready to rip!

Prior to this are PHASES 1-3 that make up up a complete build of fitness towards your A-race (to find these, search "Cody Waite" in TP store).

REUSABLE: You can easily reuse this 2-week taper plan leading into additional "A" races within the same season following Race Prep (build) cycles of training.
