On September 26, our club organizes a 400m race track sprint competition.
I’m currently about to start week 7 of the century specialty phase, after having done the planned 12w base and 8w build. I was planning on just going back to doing 8w base and then following the build and specialty for climbing road.
I’m wondering how I can best prepare for this.
I guess going 400m all out is probably like a 40-50s effort. My current 40s best is around 540W, which is just from road trips, not going all out. Last week I got a 2s peak of around 2200W during another road trip.
I guess I will need to start adding some sprint/anaerobic work to my training. How close to the event should I start adding this in? How often? Any specific workouts I can do? Can I just add those while doing base?
Thanks for the input!
