PMC Training Peaks

I have always envisioned periodization to look like gradual builds towards a peak right before an A event, followed by a valley and another peak...wash, rinse, repeat.

Last year, mine reached one peak and then steadily declined even though I had 3 A events total.

This year, Iíve reached a plateau and have stayed there since April. My first A race was early June and second was in early July.

For what itís worth, I felt better physically last year than I did this year.

What should a properly periodized training plan look like in the PMC chart?
