Member Question from PaulaLucas
"I have a question about Winter Maintenance. I just completed my sprint triathlon season and I start up again in April. I want to follow the Winter Maintenance-Run Focus program (8 weeks), but don't know when to start. I also want to do the Intermediate Sprint-12 week program before my first race. My question is, when do I start my Winter Maintenance program and when do I start the Intermediate 12 week program? Do I take any time off before I start the maintenance and before the 12 week program?"
Answer from Amanda McCrackenCoach D3Multisport.com
I would start up the winter maintenance program in mid-November and begin the 12 week program in mid-January. In my opinion, you shouldn’t take a break in between programs. The maintenance lends itself nicely as a precursor to the Intermediate Sprint 12 week program. [.....]
