Recovery week / Race Week

Hello Team,

This is a great week as many athletes are going to be racing at Ironman 70.3 Haines City and it is Recovery week.

Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced this weekend:

  • Galveston 70.3
    • Lina Miller
    • Cisco Chavez
  • Ride Across Florida
    • Laura Minns
    • Illeana Villar

Taper and Race Week:

This week, it is important to tone it down and don’t over due it. Taper can be defined as a reduction in training with the goal of having the athlete sharp at the end of taper. The goal of sharpness is to optimize fitness for a amazing performance at an important race.

Therefore, don’t go crazy in the training this week as you may feel very strong. Hold it up and give it to me on Race Day!
