Mondays are the first day of the week. It is a recovery day after the long run on Sunday and a day to brag about your early season racing from Saturday.
Do all athletes get nervous before races?
In talking to athletes, both beginning and elites, I have learned that all get nervous. More experienced athletes use the nervous feelings to
get themselves “hyped up or psyched up” for the races. I do recall that the nerves early on were huge as a freshman and much different post-college. One should try to focus on
racing, and think about how you will excel.
This is the shoe of Emil Zatopek, 3 times 1952 Olympic gold medalist. This shoe was made by Adi Dassler for Emil in 1953. Not no logos. Mr. Dassler was concerned about upsetting the Czech Communist government, so he kept the logos off the shoe. photo courtesy of adidas Communications
