For some reason or another this racing season I wanted to test the limits of my body both mentally and physically by signing up for a string of races, with short recovery windows in between and no opportunity to actually train for them.Let me explain... A month prior to Wascally I ran my "A" race of the year the Fredericton Marathon (you can read that race report HERE).
Letting go of the outcome to train and race at a higher level. It seems counterintuitive but if you have read my post Its all in your head: Mental Toughness and Body Awareness then you will start to see where I am coming from.
By all accounts my racing season in 2016 did not go well. I failed to meet all of my major goals. I did not qualify for the Boston Marathon, I blew up completely at the Brookvale 50k, and I DNF'd my first 100 miler. Well if all I cared about was results, this would be the time to through in the towel and give up.
