I get like this before the first race of the year (or at least significant race). All I can think about is the race. I am pumped to test out my tedious low hr training.
I do have the jitters, as I have done zero tempo work and zero speed work. Like most racers I plan to do the out somewhat relaxed and controlled, and start the race.
Out and back races are fun because you can see everybody, take some cheap shots, and watch the race unfold. I especially like Ice Age because there are two points of out and back, and things really change by the second one.
I think the race will begin at the turnaround. There could be fresh snow on the trail on Saturday and chilly conditions. I would not mind either as I have trained in that. I will have a spare drill wrench and screws in case I need some spikes for the shoes.
Easy week for me.
off Tuesday (spank me 37 times)
