The body takes time to recover from big races. This coming weekend is NCAA cross country crazy time. Follow your recovery days and work on your hard days. Your body needs that time to recover. Sleep well this week, and grab a nap when you can this week. Also, remember to hydrate. Stress, like big races, needs to be managed, and key to your success.
