Race-morning shakeout. I always run a short (<30min) shakeout workout which includes some lactate threshold minutes and some short speedy sprints ahead of a race. The idea is to stimulate glycogen production to top off my body's stores so that I'm nice and fueled-up for the race. For a morning race, I'd do it the day before, but recently I've been trying a same-day shakeout for afternoon/evening races. Especially during the work week, when I get home I can sometimes feel pretty sluggish - my hypothesis is that a short run earlier that day will help to prevent that. Before the TC 1-mile I ran a mid-day shakeout workout, and it definitely seemed to accomplish that goal. For this race, I knew it was going to be a hot, humid day so I opted against trying to sneak back to work after a full sweat, and ran a little shakeout run with Ellie first thing in the morning.
