MASTERS TRAINING

Is it time to consider a change in your training aim?

When we are training as high level athletes, there are certain protocols we follow. First of all, the year should be divided into four sections.

1. The transition period is normally the four weeks following the main event of the year.

2. Pre-competition are the nine weeks leading up to the competition period.

3. Competition is the 12 weeks leading up to and including the main competition.

4. Preparation makes up the rest of the year.

The pre-competition period sees the introduction of some specific race training while the competition period is dominated by specific race training.
