It’s early season and many of us are just gearing up for our season openers. So why stress trying to race to your season expectation in NOW? If your target “A” race is fall half ironman, why would you overly stress about your performance in January/February?
Take what your body has to offer and build your summer and fitness wisely. If you work hard thru the remainder of the winter months and into spring, this will be a good test of your present fitness. Every race throughout the season should be looked at as a building block toward your target “A” race. Races give you an opportunity to apply what you’ve been working on in training and gauge your improvement.
Don’t go out in April expecting to be where you want to be in November! Take your season opening races for what they are, season openers. See where you’re at, and smartly build your fitness from there.
