Peak Week – Triathlon
During this week we are going to tapering into race pace efforts. It is important to be consistent with your workouts and stay focused during this week. Make sure you are resting properly and eating a balanced diet. It is important to start laying out your nutrition plan based upon the efforts asked for you in these key workouts.
You should also be getting familiar with the race course and start to visualize yourself completing it. This week will serve as the finishing touches in your preparation for the race.
The goal of this week is to stay healthy and get ready for a peak performance come race day. Make sure you are checking in with your body. Pay attention to any niggles or aches and take the necessary steps to address them.
Be sure to get plenty of rest so you can be well rested for race day. Remember that a triathlon is at least 70% mental, so keep positive visualizations going throughout this week and stay focused on the ultimate goal of crossing that finish line! Good luck!
The key workouts for this week are:
-Specific long endurance swim, bike and runs (with race pace efforts)
-Brick workout (bike to run with race pace efforts)
-Run intervals (race specific paces)
-Optional strength and/or yoga session.
Good luck in your preparations and best of luck on race day! Have fun and remember to enjoy the journey!
