I have heard about the last 4-6 weeks of prep as being the part where (if you haven't already) you might start asking yourself 'just why the hell am I doing this, again?' The plan is definately stepped up around this time, more cardio, less carbs means that if you don't tread carefully and get overtired you might be in some trouble! I'm having little more trouble coping and keeping up with the most recent changes, noticeable in lack of recovery from weights sessions and memory/concentration suffering.
However, although I might have a 'hard' day every now and then I am doing my best to stay positive, forget what I've heard to expect and just RUN MY OWN RACE. Stef Williams gave us some really great advice a while ago that if you tell yourself you're tired, hungry etc then you will be! Why reinforce those feelings?
Ali and I had a great session with Jo this morning working on our routines. For some reason, the routine and posing have been my biggest worries! (not worried about getting lean in time, leave that up to coach! lol) So now its just a case of practice, practice practice!
I have to run and cook now (sigh!) but will update with more asap!
