Well it's half way, of summer that is, and mileage is ramping up, long runs are up on Monday, race pace within your runs, greater distances on Saturday and lots of pounding pavement. This is the buckle down/suck it up month of training leading into your goals. Legs are going to hurt, back may ache, upper shoulders on fire, little aches and pains start creeping in. Exhaustion, hunger, mind games, pool parties, vacations, socializing, late nights and skipped runs. Nice, huh, makes you wonder, WHY? BECAUSE YOU CAN, WILL, and DO IT WELL. We are not here to paint pretty pictures, we are here to guide, help, encourage, motivate and basically tell you that on Race Day when you step on that line you will know deep down all these months have paid off, You will be so PROUD of yourself and what was done to be standing on that line. As Dick said last week, NUTRITION is key so we have having our NUTRITION Chat on Wednesday night @ 5:30 in the Compu room. Please be prompt. Also,don't forget your monthly massages/chiro"s, physio appts . These are beneficial in preventative maintenance. Cross Training - can't keep telling you enough how important it is to get your core and upper body strength up to par to sustain the training and Race Day.
