It’s championship season in Track & Field. This is what everyone has been preparing for all year. Are your athletes ready? Rest assured at this time of year there is always doubt. Have I done enough? Have I done too little? The bottom line is that you must trust your preparation and assure your athletes that their preparation has been what they need.
There is nothing you can do now to make them better. If you have the urge to do something different – DON’T. If you have the urge to do one more hard workout – DON’T. Fine tune and keep reminding yourself that at this stage of the season what you don’t do is more important than what you actually do. Get them feeling like a caged lion coming out of the gate. Always remember the advice of the old cowboy: “Always dance the last dance with who brung you to the dance.”
