Do You Overprepare?
Or do you just wing it?
I know that I am on the verge of over-preparation for my ‘fun’ 10K run this weekend. Or at least that’s how I think.
How do I know that? For sure, I exceeded the mileage required as per the training plan or mileage plan for a 10K run. In the past 2 months, I have been running with mileage of 30km per week.
Come to think of it.. This over-preparation might be counter-productive as I started to think that the 10K run will be another regular running session. Well, the thing is, I have a quite modest goal: to finish the run within 1 hour.
Will definitely post the result when I get back from Bali.
Perhaps, the more fundamental question that we need to ask ourselves is that whether over-preparation is better than simply winging it.
Well, in that case, I can still safely say that ‘over-preparation’ is the way to go.
If they say: “victory loves preparation”. Then they should also say: “victory is infatuated with over-preparation”.
