    Re: 2008 Target - advice neede

    Sorry about the delay,
    it should be in the FRA calander this year, and is on 28th June, is that the week after the Ennerdale?

    That would be a tough 1-2.

    Jason
    Is it meant to be this hard?

    doing the Lakes Classics isn't a single race.
    but if you've never focussed on a single race before then you probably need to work out peaking, tapering, race strategies.
    In which case the series may provide the opportunity to build towards that one big race learning as you go. Though doing them all is probably not conducive to a single peak race. i.e. Ennerdal, Wasdale Borrowdale all 1 month apart - you couldn't do the first to and peak at Borrowdale.
    So you need a plan.

    So thats where I have been going wrong. I just turn up with a smile on my face and race.
    A quote,

    "The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall."
