Subject: Training between races
I have two Sprint Tri races coming that are separated by exactly 1 month in between. I have trained 5 months for the first one and I surely want to keep my level for the second one.

I'm looking for help in what I should do in between the two races? Do I train like during tapering? Do I train like normal in the first 2 weeks then taper at the second half?

I would give yourself some recovery after your race, start swimming maybe a day after and then add in some bike with just spinning.
Start your running a few days later, to give your legs a rest. See how you feel. Always be careful working back into training, your muscles have to repair from any damage from the race.

Then you can pickup the routine you had a month prior to your sprint, and just repeat that.

I don't think a 2 week taper is necessary though, a week should be fine.

Training our bodies to work efficiently in Zone 2 will help us keep our HR and pace even throughout an Ironman. This theory would hold true for the bike and run portion of an Ironman race.

When we get ready to train or race, we have a pretty fixed set of thoughts. We are unaware of how they affect our racing.

Experts agree, doing a “mock,” triathlon on the course you’re racing can aid you in your training; performance and most of all quell some nervous energy.
