Race preparation - Long distance
Final race preparationShow product
It’s getting serious and the last 8 weeks before “the longest day of the year” are coming up. The focus of the last training phase is therefore fully focused on training the competition form. For this purpose specific race pace intervals on the triathlon bike as well as coupling units will be used. The long run will be extended to 25 km and equipped with race specific intervals. There will be detailed information about the race nutrition so that it can be trained specifically.
The last week is designed as a taper week with the main race on Sunday.
Ambitious long distance runners who want to set a new best time, strive for a top place in their age group and want to develop their race form in the final 8 weeks.

Questions & Answers
The training plan templates are divided into three skill levels. From beginners who are relatively new to triathlon and want to finish their first race to advanced athletes and ambitious triathletes who want to achieve a top ranking. Using the filter function and the descriptions, you will find exactly the right plan that fits your level.
The training plan templates are each divided into 8-week blocks that build on each other. From the basic training to the build up training I and II to the final competition preparation, you run through a complete season up to your planned competition. Of course, it is also possible to join in between and skip individual phases. Always orientate yourself backwards from your target competition with which phase you should start. After you have loaded the plan into the AZUM training platform, you can also delete or move individual weeks.
In our training series you will get suggestions for a complete seasonal build-up to your target competition.
In order to train in your individual training zones, we recommend that you determine them using the Power-Performance Decoder or a performance diagnostic. You should repeat this at regular intervals (12-16 weeks) to check your progress and adjust the profile. Our KickAss coaches will be happy to support you if you have problems entering the metabolic profile.
Of course. We have special training camp weeks planned for you that you can integrate into your existing schedule.
