RaceTeam - Return Week 7


WEEK 7 Newsletter


We are heading into the chunky part of the programme with your longest run coming up. 

At this stage of the programme, recovery is so important as is consistency. Stick to the programme team, as we were saying at the Nutrition and Race Day Planning seminar, once your longest run is completed the programme has not finished. If you want to be at the best of your ability come the Half Marathon, be consistent. 

This is your last opportunity to have a race day practice including pre-race day planning.

What is your personal challenge? 

Many of you have done RaceTeam several times, once you have achieved a goal of a half marathon once, it is hard replicate that experience, it is a pretty awesome achievement in itself but how do continue to find the motivation to push yourself?

The group environment is a great thing, but you also need to put some mental work in yourselves to find your own challenge, your own carrot that you are chasing to improve and perform at your best. 

You will have a goal you are chasing for this particular race. Whether it is a PB or whether your goal for this Raceteam has been to work on your nutrition, body care work or consistency with your training.  Now is the time to refocus on this.

Take 10 mins and ask yourself some of these questions:

1. What have you done well so far?
2. Where can you improve?  
3. What are the habits that you know make you be consistent with your training and turn up to each session?
4. How are you going to work through to the end of this 10 weeks to the best of your ability?
5. Why are you doing this?
6. What is the goal you are going for?

Now is the time to put some time in and reflect and focus on that spark that gets you going, remind yourself why you are here, what your goal is and go for it. 

Here's a clip of Olympic champ Mo Farah talking about how he races.
