Time to celebrate and focus on your future self.
As you enter this, our final week of the program, it is so important to pause and reflect on all that you have done up to this point and celebrate! We often think that we need to achieve our goals to be able to be proud of ourselves or celebrate, but this is simply not the case. For many of you, this journey has had many twists and turns. There have been setbacks, crossroads, doubts and challenges. Events have been canceled, plans have changed and yet here you are, as prepared as you can be, ready to toe YOUR startline, wherever that now is.
As your taper continues this week there are a few things we would like you to do to help prepare you for your run and also help you honour your journey to this startline:
Journal - what have you overcome to get to this startline? Why are you proud of yourself?
Mantras - prepare your mantras that you can draw on during your run, perhaps write them down and carry them with you
Review your race plan - read over your plan and make any tweaks you need
Check your gear and fuel and make sure you have what you need all laid out
Eat well, keep your fluids up and start banking your sleep. You’ve done the work, so now it’s time to let your body rest and energise. Don’t stress if you don’t sleep well the night before your run, this is super common. Just rest as much as you can until then, and any sleep you get is a bonus!
Whilst this is the last week of your program, you will have online access to the program for 6 more weeks. This will allow you to adjust your training if you’ve had to change the date of the event, and also give you access to yoga and strength for a little longer.
We have LOVED sharing this journey with you and can’t wait to follow you through your run. Please let us know how you go, we would love to hear your stories and see your pictures in our Facebook community group, so don’t forget to jump on and share!
