THE SPRINT PREPARATION PHASE (8-12 Weeks)
You have either gone through the whole process from Foundation building your skills and technique into Winter building your fitness and holding technique under more pressure and now you’re embarking on the final preparation to your Sprint Triathlon. Or you may be just tapping into this phase of your training to help you with your final preparation for your Sprint Race.
Most people are looking to target a Sprint Triathlon
1. As their first triathlon
2. They do not have time to train for longer distances
I have built this Sprint Plan on the assumption that you are using this plan based on one of the criteria.
The key is:
1) You are not injured
2) Your enthusiasm is high (you have not overdone the training to this point)
3) Technically you are sound
4) You have done the intensity sessions in the winter plan
Improved economy + increased training loads + psychological skills = faster & tougher athlete
