A number years ago I reviewed a case study on Intel Corp. As you can imagine, manufacturing computer processors is an exacting business. Part of Intel’s success in manufacturing was the simple idea of replicating what was done in development into the production fabrication. Fabrication processes and plants were designed and operated to match exactly what worked best in development.
This is the way you should race! Training is not just about building a stronger aerobic engine. That matters. But what is essential is to take the lessons from training to execute a predictable race. Another way to put this is “nothing new on race day”. Do what you know and what you have practiced. If you have been consistent with your training, you will know exactly what works and what does not.
Enjoy your racing!
