Form for Race Day
It is common for fatigue to be high as you approach race day. You will find that this will drop as you start to taper. The more interesting figure is your Form.
- Form (TSB) is equal to yesterday’s Fitness (CTL) less yesterday's Fatigue (ATL).
- High Fitness with elevated Fatigue, results in low Form, indicating you are not ready to race.
- Form is the metric to watch for race day.
Your taper will shed fatigue at a greater rate than you lose fitness and come into form on the day that matters most… race day!
There is no single Form value that works for every athlete, but as a general rule of thumb, you would want to be slightly negative up to positive 25. If your Form becomes too high it may indicate that you tapered too much and have lost fitness.
