Reflecting Back, Looking Forward…
Whether your recent BFC was a personal best, a DNF, or somewhere in between, now is the time to reflect—making written notes even—on how things went and why.
Start with reviewing what went well so that you can be sure to incorporate it into your next race. This includes factors like physical performance (such as pacing) and your gear and fueling choices.
Next, take note of areas of opportunity, such as consuming too many or insufficient calories or fluids, timing them wrong, going out too fast, or choosing the wrong gear. These extremely helpful “lessons learned” can lead to improvement next time.
Instead of allowing these setbacks (and don’t worry, we all have them!) to be “stumbling blocks,” turn them into “stepping stones” so that you can achieve greater success in your future races.
