Remember my foremost rule:
Don't do anything you see printed on my race day preparation pages until you first clear it with your coach. I'm not your coach. I'm not going to pretend that I know you better than your coach does. There is a good chance that something printed here contradicts something your coach told you to do. If so, listen to your coach and not to me. These tips are offered here to start you thinking about races and to get you to start discussing the finer aspects of running strategy with your coach.
Remember, talk to your coach before you actually do anything you see here. Get his or her approval.
That said, click on the link below if the topic interests you.
|My name is Hristo Botev. I coached runners in Bulgaria before coming to this country to flee Communist oppression. I have lived in upstate New York since 1958. Even though my native country was freed from Communist tyranny in 1990, I decided to stay in America, because I love this country. Barry Comstock asked me to offer some tips on how to be ready for to run a good race. I hope you can learn something valuable from what follows.|
