"After the race is before the race” – this 8 weeks plan prepares triathletes for end of season marathon (or semi-marathon). This plan was proven to deliver a Personal Best by many athletes and includes as special bonus some favourite run and swim workouts of an Olympic Champion Nicola Spirig and Ironman Hawaii champions Daniela Ryf and Chris McCormack.
The main condition to start with this plan is to be fully recovered from your main "A" race – physically, emotionally and mentally.
You start with 2 weeks of mini-transition period. Then you have 3 weeks of increasing intensity, where in the 3rd week the volume is getting serious and 2 weeks of volume focus. Then 1 week of tapering and you are ready! With this compressed and very focused preparation cycle, you can truly be flying in your 2nd peak race!
