I have a big hill to climb on Saturday. And I can always tell when I have a difficult race coming up. It starts disrupting my sleep.
The lead hill is four miles and it’s a category 2… translation straight up.
Hague 70.3 is this Saturday. It didn’t actually keep me awake last night, but my fears were definitely present in the dreams that I remember. The goal is to keep my head on straight for the next few days and just relax and trust in my abilities.
Now if I could just do something about that giant hill that kicks off the bike ride, the rest of the race should be amazing.
Do you get less sleep leading up to a race? Any mechanisms for staying calm? Enjoying the day?
