I'm actually having a solid summer of racing after last year's over-training fiasco. I was first at the Superior Downhill Mile on the 4th in 4:00 (actually 3:59.xx, but they rounded up). It seems that my best racing always comes when I don't think too much about it and just focus on having fun. Has anyone else noticed this? Last summer I stressed about my training and racing and my performance suffered; this summer I'm just trying to enjoy running.
I'm off to England next Wednesday to conduct research for the dissertation. I hope everyone is having a good summer.
