October 6-12, 2019
Often times as we approach the end of a racing season, it is time to look at your fitness program and see what is missing. Focus on deficiencies this week!
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Mobility Time. A long racing season and months of training, can lead to various deficiencies in mobility. Are you tight in the hips? Are you weak in many stabilizer muscles, etc? It is time to break out the foam roller, massage gun, and whatever tools you have to increase your mobility in tight areas. Follow up those mobility sessions with some corrective strengthening. Make sure to strengthen the stabilizer muscles around the joints that you are working on. Give some training to the muscles that are not being used as much in your run training or rest of your training.
2. Is Your Diet Lacking? Similarly, look at your diet. Are you out of wack on your macronutrients? Sometimes a long racing season can lead to your diet being full of carbs and energy type snacks. Are you supplementing heavily still with sports drinks and other racing fuels? Time to do the “pantry shuffle” and get back to a good well rounded diet with whole foods. Get out of your high volume training diet and back to good nutrition practices.
