Bit of and IMJ type question, here goes:
This summer I have events spaced roughly every 3 to 4 weeks:
Wings for Like, marathon run 5 May
IM 70.3 St Polten 26 May
IM 70.3 Elsinore 23 June
Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathon 6 July
IM Hamburg 27 July
ITU Worlds 1 Sep
IM 70.3 Nice 7 Sep (being a bit optimistic here)
After Wings for like, I just went into taper for St Polten. After st Polten I had 3 days off then went into windsurfing/training, currently on a fairly big week, planning a 2 week taper from next week
After Elsinore, I will probably take a lighter 2 weeks, and incorporate Great Kindrochit as a big training day, then go into a 3 week taper for Hamburg
I didn’t plan to have so many events this summer, but didn’t have the will power to resist @Jorgan for Hamburg and the temptation to have another go at NQ after such a near miss, means that I am at the limit of what I can do.
Do coaches or anyone who has had a similarly big season have any advice for the best way to handle the gaps between races?
