Race Week

I came into this week not feeling overly awesome. The last few weeks haven't been the best training either. But all of that said I woke up this morning and actually feel amazing. I'll stretch my legs today and Wednesday, but other than that I won't do any additional running and nothing with elevation.

My race strategy is as follows; run as hard and as fast as I can until I collapse. At that point my crew is allowed to let me wallow in the dirt for 10 minutes, force me to get up, and start the process all over again. It's a solid strategy. I'm getting really excited!

I like that race strategy.

"Peaking" for big races is as much mental as physical sometimes. Often in the 7-10 days leading up to a big race, I'll go from feeling amazing to crappy to pretty good to crappy again... but all that really matters is how you feel when you wake up on race morning.

Good luck this weekend!
