The Holiday Lake 50k is 2 days away! On Saturday I’m going to be freezing, exhausted, and sore, but more importantly I’m going to meet up with an old friend…Pizza. The meeting will be brief. So brief in fact that I will probably not even recall inhaling this beautiful piece of food, but by golly it’s going to taste FANTASTIC!
Three weeks ago I gave up pizza, ON PURPOSE, with the sole purpose of giving myself a reward to look forward to during the race.
My mental plan of attack:
- Give up something you love 2-3 weeks leading up to a tough event
- -For me that’s the three amigos of deliciousness (Pizza, Beer, Cookies)
- Reward yourself after the event
