  • The Perfect Two-Week Taper
    80 per cent of athletes It is this 80 per cent of athletes that tend to respond in a typical way and perform well from the outlined approach There are many that fall out of this bucket of athletes but it should provide a platform to build from While I am calling out disclaimers I may as well add another This lead in only works if you have previously been consistent in your training and approach This is not a magic bullet but rather an approach to transfer your fitness into fast racing So with that let s investigate Framing The Taper I have always been a little uncomfortable with the word taper It seems to do some very funny things to an athlete s psyche and induces all sorts of questions and worry when none is needed I have also observed way too many athletes try to use a taper as a last chance bid to rest themselves out of a reservoir of fatigue induced by a massive load of training without integrated recovery The big taper or rest out of deep fatigue is always unsettling and a little bit of a game of luck to time the recovery I tend to have most athletes use the last couple of weeks as a sharpening period with much of the resting done quite a way out from the actual race itself This brings me to the first rule of thumb for preparing for a key event Rest Early Then Build Or Sharpen Into The Race This means that depending on how important the event is I prefer to give an athlete a few days of real clean out or rest before the last preparation or training for race day For Ironman or half Ironman distances this typically means three to five days or greatly reduced volume and intensity about 11 15 days out from race day Thisisa time to allow massive rejuvenation recovery and repair The result of this rest will be varied but you might experience a feeling of lethargy and tiredness as your body begins to adapt to the previous training load and repair Feeling flat in training is normal and you are certainly not in a place to perform your best following this little rest period but luckily you still have many days to go before it is time to perform If you repair and recover well and rid your body of previous fatigue you can now begin to sharpen into your race and actually build into the event itself You should respond quickly to workload as well as to rest and have much greater control into how much training you will do before race day Next Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session How to do a proper plank Why you should run on grass FILED UNDER Training TAGS advice hydration Nutrition Pre Race programme recovery rest Strategy Taper Tapering Tips Most Read Popular Now Most Watched

  • Should You Finish A Bad Training Session?
    your body just cannot perform at the same level you know it could on just about any other day There s nothing particularly wrong you just lack the usual snap in your legs It can be frustrating to perform key workouts in this condition and see pace or heart rate numbers that are far off your targets So why not just ignore the numbers and complete the planned workout by effort instead You will get a stronger training effect than you would get from abandoning the workout but without the frustration of measuring your subpar performance Choose this option if after warming up and beginning the main portion of your workout you feel overwhelmed by the planned pace heart rate but still able to do the workout if you just dial back the throttle a bit Option 3 Cut It Short Suppose you warm up for a high intensity workout and feel so flat that you can t even face the planned session yet you know that you will feel even worse mentally if you simply stop and go home On these occasions consider replacing your planned workout with a few very short very high intensity intervals For example replace a set of 5 x 3 00 intervals at VO2max intensity with 8 x 30 second relaxed sprints 95 of full speed The reason this works is that fatigue tends to be compartmentalized within energy systems and often fatigue that prevents you from performing well aerobically does not prevent you from performing well anaerobically This phenomenon offers another possibility to salvage some kind of training stimulus and prevent a blow to your confidence even on those days when your body is less capable than expected Option 4 Go Easy While fatigue is sometimes specific to the aerobic system other times it is generalized taking option three off the table In these instances your best choice is to perform a relatively short low intensity recovery workout As you gain experience in training you will learn the difference between how your body feels when it is not ready for high intensity aerobic training but still able to handle a few sprints and when it is not ready for any high intensity training Until you have that experience default to option three on days when you feel flat yet not so bad that taking the day off seems like the most sensible option On some of these occasions you will discover that even your warmup don t go well Connecting this experience with how your body felt before you tried the workout will enable you to decide when you just need to go easy in future workouts Option 5 Go Home On days when you feel lousy even at warmup intensity or your muscles are extremely sore from previous training or you feel the pain of an incipient injury somewhere in your body let distrcretion be the better part of valor and take the day off Know that it is the right decision
