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.

Course Description:

  • Run around McCormacks Bay Road towards Ferrymead.

  • At Main Road - follow our cones to turn right and run up the course-way towards towards Beachville Road (running towards Sumner direction).

  • Where our cones indicate - CROSS OVER Main Road CAREFULLY. Turn left then first right into Beachville Road. You will be directed by cones to run on the footpath on the waterside of Beachville Road.

  • Follow Beachville Road all the way around back onto Main Road, turn left and follow the water all the way out to Sumner.

  • Once out at Sumner - run towards Cave Rock and run along the Esplanade beachside pathway to the very end.

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?
