Use this training plan for the final 8 weeks leading into Red Bull Defiance.
An often neglected area of preparing for an event is simulating the race environment in training. During defiance you will be training with a partner, carrying your food and water, and exercising for long durations on back-to-back days in the middle of summer.
Some important aspects that are integrated into this training plan are;
> Nutrition and hydration
> Running before and after mountain biking
> Training with your partner; who’s stronger at what?
> Completing “big weekends” to simulate the 2-day demands of defiance
