Guilt, pleasure and time with coach Mark Ryan – on tapering
“When someone is coming into a taper, the worst thing you can do is just stop training. There’s a real knack to getting it right.
Do short, sharp sessions. So that’s shorter sessions with faster intervals and lots of recovery. One of my favourites for a run session is: one minute intervals at your fastest training pace, followed by 3 minutes really easy running, five times through.
By the end of the workout, you feel you’re banked some work but because the majority of it has been at an easy pace it doesn’t add much stress and allows your body to continue to recover”
Adequate fuelling on the bike is key not just for a strong bike but also successful run. Add nutrient dense, energy packed Amore energy bars to your nutrition plan and watch your performance skyrocket!
