How many competitions should I attempt per year?
It depends on your level of fitness and lengths of the races. The fitter you are and shorter the races,
the more you can do at a competitive level. It’s wise to set one race as your personal goal for the year
where you are at your peak performance level. In the member’s-only section of the website you can enter
the race where you have set this annual goal and we’ll provide you specialized training plans to optimal
shape for this race. These plans will be adjusted to day “x” of your race and will also include plans
