The psych

I really wasn’t nervous about the 24 hours of sunlight race till the other night when Tracey started to question me on what my goal was. Till then it was a daydream of things to come. But at that moment it became a reality that is about to happen.

And now it is 8 days away and I am beginning the real psych up. Trying to amp myself up, increase my mental levels so that they will pull me through the race. ” Breathe and Believe” has always been the mantra and now I must really believe.

Over the season I have tried to make 10 000 feet feel less and less challenging, so that I can make 50+ feasible. If 10 starts to feel easy than doing over 5 times it should be challenging but achievable. Some times its hard to imagine what 50 000 feet was like last year and how I plan on doing more this year. Such a large number it almost seems like a dream. To climb up 15 km vertically and ski it down seems ludicrous.

But this lunacy is about to happen again and I must channel everything I have to make it seem feasible.

The energy levels are building and my being is excited about the challenge. Soon I will be challenged to dig as deep as I can.

Looking forward to it………
