Phase 1: Week 4

High Intensity Training

Find one day this week just to work on a new skill such as rollerblading or climbing. If you need new gear, this is the time to buy it and try it out.

If you can schedule yourself a training race 4-5 weeks before your race, that is perfect. This is to iron out nutrition, gear and feet. If you cannot do an Adventure Race, a marathon, 100 mile road ride, or mountain bike races are all good ideas.
