Good preparation is what allows us to have great races.  Below you will find links to more details on training for various sport events and in a variety of conditions.  The ingredients of good conditioning normally are endurance and speed -- for each individual there is a different amount of each.

The ultimate goal is to finish with a feeling of personal satisfaction and accomplishment. With proper training, we can all reach that goal, each with the knowledge that we have succeeded.
