This is the Cross Country CHAMPIONSHIPS PHASE & Track & Field SPECIFIC PREPARATION PHASE
With every success find humble confidence.
With every setback, find opportunity & resolve.
To be prepared on the day, you must prepare for the day.
This week marks a step-up in required intensity and focus - with XC fully in Championship Mode and the rest of the team starting Official Practices. Your bodies are prepared for the physical demands, but they will need greater attention to RECOVERY to assure that they perform the way you want them to when we need it. Your brains need particular attention, too - they will be in hyper-processing mode, so they need to be properly fueled and rested so they can perform the way we need them!
Be B.I.G. Time!
Now is why we did so much work to establish our rhythms and relationships on the academic side - the semester's biggest assignments and finals are looming just when you want to really focus on your athletics. When everything is moving along as you want and you have all your resources primed and ready, even the most difficult tasks are manageable to a high level of success.
Take note of how you are feeling in that regard this semester. Adjust as necessary now and consider how you will adjust so you are in an even better position for success at this point in future semesters.
