The aim of this paper is to compare the walker’s 20 and 50 km final preparation in an elite woman race walker. It highlights the changes in training load with regards to general and specialized indicators associated with change prepare from 20 km to 50. It was experienced that racer has got a natural physical endurance and is capable to tolerate an extremely long distances therefore a spontaneous change to 50 km distance. The biggest difference in special training indicators is in the increase of number of kilometers to about 679 km in five mesocycles. General training indicators show the major difference in number of training load units and overall time of the load. Our racewalker was motivated to achieve better results in a 50-km race, a race with better chances for improvement than 20-km based on her personal best. The preparation of the racewalker was without health complications. In conclusion, the change of preparation from 20 km to 50 km was associated with high training load and overall training time and not associated with worse health outcomes. However, further studies are warranted for maintenance of optimum training routine and record adverse health effects for a difficult racewalking preparation to 50 km for women.
