|Training Planning||A look at the principles and practise of a structured approach to planning a whole race season.|
|TRAINING DIARY||A very useful, if not mandatory, tool to organise your training. Without getting your training plan down on paper you will be kidding yourself if you think you are training properly. At least you should note down what you want to do and what you did achieve.
However, the first and most important thing to write down is your goals. Without deciding on what you want to achieve this season you wont know how to train for it.
