Here is the official book description below. Thank you in advance for considering buying directly from the authors!
Nothing makes a runner feel quite so alive as the pre-race jitters. Racing is when you find out what works for you and what holds you back, when you find out how you stack up—and where you want to go next.
Whether your next race is a 5K or an ultramarathon, the Compete Training Journal will transform your approach to competing and make sure that race day brings out the best in you. New racers will get a fast-track road map to racing success while experienced competitors will deepen all aspects of their mental game for even better performances.
Drawing from their two decades of professional racing experience, runners Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas will guide you to:
- Set goals you can achieve.
- Map out the steps to achieve your goals.
- Log your workouts.
- Avoid harmful obsession with outcomes.
- Make racing an expression of your training.
- Set smart race strategies.
- Relax! And train with intention.
- Emphasize the process instead of the goals.
- Avoid comparing yourself to others.
- Get in the zone leading into your race.
- Capitalize on understanding your strengths and weaknesses.
- Build up a strong “case for yourself” on race day.
- Keep it fun.
- Reflect on your season and consider the next challenge.
With Compete Training Journal, no matter how many years you’ve been running and competing, you’ll look at competition in a new way and find new reward from the running you love.
Includes space for goal setting, workout log space for two seasons of racing (i.e. spring/fall), race plans and reviews, a race calendar, and pace charts for 200m to 26.2 mi.
