Ready for race day with this bike-run workout the week before your big race…
Taper time is about resting and recovering, while maintaining your feel and sharpness necessary for a peak performance. Try this session about a week out from your A-priority race to maintain your race-day energy systems, while not being too fatiguing. It’s best to do the session on the bike you’ll race on and terrain similar to what you’ll experience on race day.
