St. Jude Training Tip

Training tip of the week
A training program is not dependent on one workout. The key is staying consistent and healthy over the course of the training plan. Missing a workout occasionally or taking an extra day off will not ruin your race. It can actually improve your fitness over time by allowing you to arrive at your next workout fresh and energized. Don’t get greedy either when things are going well. Your confidence will build as you complete each week's mileage. The temptation is to add some extra miles or more speed for “extra credit,” but it’s important to stick to your plan. This mistake is repeated over and over by endurance athletes. What you are doing is working, you are healthy and on target. Don't drive yourself over the cliff.
