Ahhhh…race week. I love it. My schedule is something like this: I’ll Squat 5×5 on Monday, Do some sprints on Tuesday, Do a Tabata run on Thursday, Rest Friday and kick ass on Saturday.
There’s just something cool about race week that I love. Just chilling out, putting my game face on and preparing mentally. I know I’m not in the Olympics or doing anything really fantastic, but I approach all of my races like they are very important events. There’s no reason to do it if you aren’t going to take it seriously right? I still enjoy it and have fun, but I do take it very seriously. I’m going to try to beat as many people as possible. I’m going to try to beat my last 50K time. I compete against everyone and most importantly myself. I’d love to post my race report here with as close to a 5:30 50K as possible. That would be seriously awesome.
Edit: Uh oh…Coach just changed things up. Squats and
Snatches Cleans tomorrow…Fran on Wednesday!!! Woah… ( I love it that my coach texts me the night before race week to tell me the program has changed…)
