Use the experiences you gathered while training and racing in 2017 as motivation for your 2018 season.
NCAA runner turned high school coach Hillary Kigar has an answer for all things training!
There are going to be days when you just feel off. Sometimes we want to push ourselves, but our body forces us to slow down. When you have a “bad” run, think about if anything was different that day. Less sleep? Work stress? Inclement weather? Take note of what you can prevent or correct.
But it’s important to embrace the bad with the good and to believe in yourself even when you feel like “the run did you” rather than “you did the run.” Part of the reward comes from getting through those tough days.
