Sage Rountree Tells How to Race Wisely

Sarah and Dimity welcome back noted yogini and triathlon coach Sage Rountree to talk about Sage’s latest book, Racing Wisely: a Practical and Philosophical Guide to Performing at Your Personal Best. The gals dive into the difference between a race intention and race goal, plus the importance of having a spectrum of goals. The conversation naturally flows into the definition of “personal best.” They talk about the four quarters of a race and why the third is always the toughest (quarters/trimesters: Sarah tosses out a pregnancy analogy). To help tackle late-stage challenges, Sage advocates lots of testing during training. Perhaps most critical of all: Find out which mother runner would have to be Shirley if the gals ever recreate “Laverne & Shirley.”
