Good luck to all of the athletes for Reisinger Ironman at 70.3 Augusta and Ironman Chattanooga. You have trained hard and have put all the work now! It is time to perform! I will see you guys at the finish line.
Friday -Expo Day -5pm Practice Swim at Swim Start -Team Dinner (celebrate Yadira & Mercy Bday) At Outback Steakhouse (we will play it by ear on time to allow everyone to finish their swim and go to hotel to shower and change)
It has been six months of hard training and dedication. You want to have a great race. You have envisioned the finish line. However, when it comes to racing, many athletes ‘burn so many matches’ in the beginning of the race. If you have been training at a steady state effort for a race, why will you go harder in the race if you haven’t trained to hold those efforts for long periods of time. This will lead into ‘burning your matches’ early in the race. Follow your race plan and your nutrition plan. Get enough rest leading into the rest. Check your resting heart rate early in the morning. Keep track on what you are eating. Make the adjustment necessary so you can have a good race.
As a coach, the last thing I want to see is two bottles full of nutrition on your bike after the race. Follow your plan and stick with it.
Listen to your Coach!
Please write down everything you plan to eat on the bike and on the run. When you are ready, shoot me a text and email and let me know when you are free to chat.
