Racing your training….not good!
Many athletes are hitting great numbers while running or biking! However, when it comes race day you try to hit the same pace and power output… you just can’t get there.
While training should challenge you, it’s not meant to test you in all of the same ways that racing does.  If it does, you are racing not training. And if you race in training eventually you’ll plateau and won’t be able to match your best practice performances on race day.
The athlete can be pushing themselves too hard in the training, pushing for faster times to show they are in greater and greater race shape. But, many athletes can be racing the training and on race day, they can race flat, tired and unable to come anywhere close to what their training suggested.
Therefore, it is very important to follow your paces during training and don’t be going to hard.  As you approach your next big race, don’t leave your race in training.  Make racing special by saving your best efforts for race day.
