I've noticed, in my grand 1.5 years of racing experience, that I don't really like afternoon races.
I always feel great in the morning, but sometimes feel a bit sluggish in the afternoon. My brain knows I'm going to race, but my body seems to think it's time to lounge in the shade on a lazy saturday afternoon. It was the worst today, legs didn't feel like they wanted to get going despite an ample warmup. I suppose it could've been the 3+ hour drive, the 90+ heat, or maybe I didn't eat well...who knows.
Anyone have any suggestions to bust the lazy/sluggish feeling?
