Training  Schedule For Week Before Triathlon

I have been training for 5 weeks, coached.  I signed up to do my first triathlon (a sprint) on July 8th.  I'm supposed to start week 2 of "build block" next week, but think I should modify the workouts to save some energy for the triathlon.  Any recommendations?  Thank you.  (The last triathlon I did was 9 years ago, and I just did random workouts to train for that by myself.)

    Hey Susan,congrats on your race!! I grew up in Mass and have done many road races,marathons and Tri's so Maine in August should be quite nice.Try to include some hill training as Maine can be a little hilly,is your swim in a lake/pond or the ocean?Nice to know water temps prior to racing.Take care,Mike
