    Stumbled across the log book at a half price store and had a few questions for the veteran users.

    I usually plan my season around 3 or 4 main races and 4 or 5 "survival races"
    (i.e. longer distance races that i do to challenge my fitness, but not racing to win, place or
    show). They are spaced out anywhere from a month apart or even back to back on subsequent
    days. How should i categorize them? The races i try to do well at are obviously A races,
    but since the others require a huge effort in terms or speed OR endurance would they be
    A's or B's.

    Ho should i handle taper/transition weeks. I dont want to overtrain but do i really need a 7 day
    taper/transition for sprint races?
