HOW MUCH OF AFFECT DOES RACING HAVE (1 A MONTH) WHILE BASE BUILDING? (Read 451 times)


Consistently Slow

    MY TIMES APPEAR TO BE SLOWING DOWN. COULD BE FROM A LACK OF REST. THE PLAN IS TO DO A MAFF TEST AFTER A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP (RIGHT). MY NEXT RACE IS SEPT 20 IN ABBOTSFORD,BC,CANADA. 11 WEEKS OF MAFF TRAINING BETWEEN RACES. IT LOOKS LIKE MY OTHER RACES ONLY HAVE ABOUT 5 WEEKS OF MAFF TRAINING. THE RACE TIMES ARE BETTER BUT THE MILEAGE IS UP 100% (50+) VS (100+) IF NOTHING ELSE THE MATT PLAN AS PREVENTED INJURES WHICH HAS KEPT ME ON THE ROAD.

    Run until the trail runs out.

     The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

      IVE GONE THROUGH SEVERAL PERIODS OF SLOWING AT MAFF OVER THE PAST 1.5 YEARS. YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE STRAIGHT LINE IMPROVEMENT. I THINK YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT IT IN 2-3 MONTH INCREMENTS OR IT WILL DRIVE YOU CRAZY.

        Just Be

          I don't think racing has much of an effect during a base phase as long as the races are not conducted at 100% effort or if they are that you can recover from the 100% effort quickly enough as to not interfere with your base building plan.
            It's not a base phase if you're racing. By the end of a racing season of about 8-12 weeks, my MAF tests decline. This is due partially to the effect of stress. lactic acid, and a focus on fast twitch. Partially due to lower volume. I haven't done a pure base phase since December, and its almost time. --Jimmy

                Don't mind me. I'm a bit of a smart ass. No offense taken, I hope...none intended. Smile
