Races are starting to get back on the schedule but I think we are all hesitant to get excited yet. There are dreams of a race full 2021, but at this point I don't think anyone knows for sure. Even though the future is unclear, are you race day ready? I strongly feel like if you have been training the right way, you should be no more than 8 weeks out to race ready shape.
If you feel like you are there, then keep it up. If not, I have some great training tips for your next OCR in this episode. In the Inside Mike's Mind segment I talk all about Vitamin D. With everything going on right now, you have probably heard of the research showing the issues with D deficiency and COVID severity. I touch on this plus how this powerful vitamin can help boost your performance. But, don't just going throwing down loads of D supplements. There is a darkside to taking too much vitamin D. You don't want to miss this one.
In my research review, sticking with the health crisis, I discuss different types of training methods and immunity. We assume that exercise boost our immune system, but this isn't always the case. Learn what type of training can actually reduce your immune response.
And finally, I am without an interview this week so you get a bonus section with me. In this segment I discuss how you can measure progress. You put so much work and effort into your training and without a race day result, how are you sure you are improving? Many get stuck in the workout to workout with no idea if their training actually gets them closer to their goals. I discuss a few ways I work with my clients to check on their progress.
All this and more.
