No matter how well or poor training seems to be going, Race Day is an opportunity to arrange for your mental toughness to shine because, at some point, it’s gonna hurt. Today, we go through ways to approach your race mentally and break things into portions you can manage. We also look at how to be fit and fresh from the chin up during taper and why that plays such a huge role on race day. Mental and physical walls. The “make or break” miles of your race. And why going the distance in training isn’t as important as you think.
