2-Weeks to Race Plan for XTERRA Triathlon - Reusable
Written by Cody Waite, Endurance Coach, Professional Endurance Athlete and co-owner of Sessions:6 Sport Performance
You're 2 weeks out from race day, you're well trained, fit and eager to race. Final step is to rid yourself of fatigue and improve your freshness to arrive at start line ready to rip.
My 2-week plan to taper and reach your peak for your XTERRA "A" race. This program is designed as the 4th and final phase of my XTERRA training program; to follow my 6-week Base Prep Phase, 9-week Base Phase, and 7-week Race Prep Phase. With all training done and "the hay in the barn" it is time to freshen up and while sharpening your race-specific skills in the final two weeks before race day.
RACE PHASE: 2 weeks, designed to de-load the accumulated fatigue from the Race Prep Phase intensity, while increasing race-ready freshness. Intensity remains while overall volume drops and recovery is in place, leaving you ready to race!
REPEATABLE: You can easily re-use this plan for additional "A" races within the same season (or again in future seasons). Within the same season, simply re-load it on your Training Peaks calendar 9-weeks out from next goal race and fill in the time before with additional base training.
- Ability Level: Intermediate to Advanced (program adjustable in both volume and intensity)
- Number of Weeks: 2 (1 Taper, 1 Race)
- Training Days per Week: 4-6 (written for 6 days, but can be consolidated to as few as 4)
- Training Hours per Week: 7-12
- Equipment Needed:pool, open water (if available), HRM, power meter is preferred.
