Duathlon Standard distance Pre Competition Phase 6 week plan
Nick de Meyer British Triathlon Federation level 3 Coach, Training Bible Master endurance coachAll plans by this Coach
This pre competition standard distance duathlon plan will get you race ready in the final 6 weeks leading up to your duathlon.
You should have build a solid base level of fitness and progressed through a build phase of training prior to starting this plan.
This Pre Competition phase of training plan has been prepared to help you work more on the specifics of your goal A race. This time is an opportunity to do some local “training races” to become used to the race paced efforts. During this phase of training, the focus will move away from developing muscular strength to increasing muscular endurance, strength and power, it will include less important races, lactate tolerance more, interval sessions and an opportunity to practice race tactics, such as open water swimming, transitions and brick sessions
The plan itself will develop your lactate system, or race pace, and build on the aerobic base fitness you have developed. It is the anaerobic or speed work that you need to go faster, which will feel hard to start with in week 1, getting easier as the weeks go by as you adapt and build your anaerobic system
