Moving On After A Race Goes Wrong

2. Listen to your body.

A sub-par race performance might be telling you something is wrong with your training. Answer the following 5 questions:

a) Was my training consistent?

b) Did I hit my weekly mileage goals?

c) Did I do the little things? (stretching, core work, mobility exercises, strides)

d) Was I eating properly?

e) Did I rest and recover well from workouts?

If you answered no to any of these questions, it’s a good reminder that everything matters. Listen to your body. Perhaps your body has been whispering to you that something needs your attention. A wise man once told me to “listen to the whispers, so you don’t have to hear the screams”.
