Peaks & Valleys

Peaks & Valleys

Today’s Workout
3 rounds:
400m Run
– 2-3 min rest
800m Run
– 4-5 min restIs it possible to peak for an event without resting? Is there such a thing as a peak if you never have lows and take time off? Is max performance relative? I ask these questions because I hear people talking about how taking time off before an event doesn’t help them, and may even hurt their performance… and I wonder… is it possible for some people to perform at their highest level and not take time off for rest, recovery and tapering? For me, and for most of the athletes I have seen and coached, the answer is no… without rest and recovery, performing at peak levels is impossible. But I’m curious, what works for you?

Armen goes for it at Sectionals
