  • summary For many athletes, a year of training comes down to one major race when strength, skill, speed, endurance, and tactics all need to come together at the right time. The final preparation for competition is both an art and a science, requiring an understanding of the physiological changes that are occurring and the skills to manage the psychological and emotional state of an athlete as they near the culmination of a hard year of training.
