From Coach Greg:
Race day success is often traced back to this week. At this point in the training, it’s all about “chop wood, carry water.” Just get out the door and get the training in. It can seem arduous and you may find yourself eating more, sleeping more and sometimes in a bad mood. That’s normal. Your body and mind are being challenged to get fitter. Just keep your head down and get the runs done.
When tired, you often lose your form and poor form causes poor biomechanics and poor biomechanics lead to injury. Practice my tips for good running form on your most challenging runs:
