What’s Next?

As race season winds down and reviewing you accomplishments, it is time to set goals and plan for 2013:

  • Write down your goals.
  • Get a 2013 calendar. Start putting races on the calendar. Use or race websites for the dates.
  • Prioritize the races from C to A. C races are workouts, A races are the main race. Limit the number of A races for the year.
  • Make sure you have plenty of recovery and preparation between A races in the calendar.
  • Review your 2012 races; look at what you need to work on.
  • Go back to the basics: Use December through February to work on the weak part of sport or your weak sport. Write this in calendar.
  • Now build on your basics with speed and endurance from March to peaking 1-2 weeks before your first A race. Write this in calendar.
  • Maintain your fitness between the A races.

What you have created in your calendar is a modified version of Periodization training.  This will keep you  on course for great 2013 race season.
