RaceTeam - Return Week 9


WEEK 9 Newsletter

We are getting close!

We are now in our silly season, that time in the programme where people lose focus. Every time we have a RaceTeam programme running we find that people lose focus in the last couple of weeks leading up to the race. Remember that this time is just about important as any other time in the programme.

We know that's it tempting to drop sessions because your longest run is over, but it's your job to keep to the programme 100%. It's all about being the best athlete you can be and the taper is a part of doing this.

As runners we are pretty strong mentally; we run in the rain, we get up in the dark to train and at the end of the day when we are tired we still get our sessions done.

Prior to a race our brain can start to play tricks on us and we may start to feel very nervous and doubt can creep in. 

How can we use this nervous energy to our advantage?

  • Don't forget to RSVP to the Post Race Function. All the details are at the top of this newsletter.
  • Now is a good time to make sure you have all your gear for the race; nutrition, warm clothes/wet weather clothes..write a list and check it twice!
