Focus Blocks

During these focus blocks I will be maintaining and working on the other disciplines however the main objective is to really focus on the goal discipline.  The strength training will also be targeted towards the block’s focus.


Boot Camps 

I have already set out the boot camps for the next two years with the following:

  • Block 3 – Two week boot camp
  • Block 4 – 1 week boot camp
  • Block 14 – 1 week boot camp
  • Block 19 – 1 week boot camp
  • Block 20 – 4 week cycle focus boot camp
  • Block 25 – 3 week boot camp

  1. Sounds like a wonderful challenge. Would love to see the periodization plan for the two year to peak effectively at 2020 IM Aus. I understand the theory around the focused block. Why the cycle, run, swim? And not swim-cycle-run to ensure your running is at its strongest?


    1. Hey Mate, Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I love it!

      I will be posting more information in the coming weeks. In a nutshell, I have looked at what I need to work on, local events, work peak seasons, family commitments, training logs, etc, etc and came up with a “developing” blueprint for the next two years.

      There is a lot more information I need to add to fill in a lot of the blanks in the coming weeks.
