Webinar: Pacing Wisely: Performing at Your Personal Best on Race Day
Topic: Pacing Wisely: Performing at Your Personal Best on Race Day
You've dialed in a training cycle for your key race—are you ready to pace it properly? All the training in the world is useless if you can't manage your effort correctly on race day. In this webinar, Sage Rountree, USAT level 2 coach and author of the new book Racing Wisely, teaches mental and physical skills to execute your race to the best of your ability. If you've ever run out of gas before the finish or think a negative split is impossible—or if you're eager to land on the podium before the season is out—you won't want to miss this presentation. You'll learn how to set your intention and appropriate time goals and paces, and how to stick to them when things get intense; how to manage your efforts to race for your personal best time; and how to race for competitive placing. Along the way, we'll investigate training and taper workouts to dial in your skills for race day. You'll finish the webinar inspired to deliver your personal best at your next race.
