|Subject: ||RE: Training Phases (As in Daniel's RF)|
I wouldn't follow the plan as it's written in the book, that is just an example. I would make sure you finish your 5-6 week Phase 3 about 2-3 weeks before your last championship race. I like to cut the 4th phase short since Daniels excludes lactate tolerance workouts and race specific work (if the race is longer than 1-2 miles). I do one mixed pace workout (rep, interval, threshold) and one race specific work during those 3ish week.
Work backwards from the last race - 3 weeks of phase 4, 5-6 weeks of phase 3, and the time before that focus on building and maintaining mileage and getting in lots of tempos and thresholds, as well as short hill/flat sprints and JD defined "rep" workouts.
