I was racing the ITU Long Distance about a month ago. It was one of the goals for my season… The other season goal is just 6 days away : Ironman Canada in Whistler. It is always a bit tricky thing to recover from one long distance and get to be fit for fight for the next one, that is just 4 weeks away… How to do that then?
I did not try this before… So I am not sure if my plan works… But I believe that it does
The week after my ITU race I had a recover week: just a little training and short sessions . My week was full action, as we took a flight to Colorado/Boulder right 2 days after the race… for work and training
The second and third week have been heavy training and now it is time for tapering.
I feel good, I feel strong, and I am sure I will be fit on Sunday.
The funny in this is, that when the plan was made, all my doubts came, but then I just trust the program, and yes……..
in the last 3-4 days, all sessions has been just like they need to be, easy and strong.
So yes, it can be done, but you need at good plan, and then just trust it, so that was my point on this …..
So … the 3 last weeks we have been in Boulder, mostly for working, as I have been helping the Tri TeamBravo with the nutrition. But of course there has also been a lot of super training sessions; either alone or together with the team..
