the only session I am fearful of is
23 Avoriaz Brick Session (1h bk, 3k, 1h bk, 6k, 1h bk, 9k)
I am a great advocate of developing form, be it swimming, cycling and especially running
way back in the 80's I questioned the benefit of the brick session related to physiological benefits, in-between they have tried to justify the session related to the neurological benefits.
To me (imo), this is yet again mumbo jumbo that can't be measured
success on the day, is how you feel on the day.
Emotional . Mental . Physical state of matters on the day
if you apply a session on the 23rd and you have a negative response it will affect the above mentioned E . M . P
so take heed of the warning on that particular day
and focus on form . form . form during that session . do not look to grind out speed .. look to achieve good form, first and foremost and the speed will be taken care of
use the time during the run to focus on foot placement, upper body carriage, arms etc ..
hope this doesn't scare you but instead enlighten you
then coming back to your sessions, you don't need this on the 25th
25 Long run (up to 2hrs)
your 10 x 400m and 3 x 1600m at this point are to achieve the feel good factor
bang yourself in the pool, as the recovery from hard sessions there are rapid
ps.. hope this gives you something to digest
