Motivational Monday: Kick

Nineteen days until CMAT. Nine of those days are considered spring break. One of those days is a traveling day. Of the remaining nine days, we only have practice on seven of them (if you include tonight's practice), so in terms of organized practices, you have one week until CMAT.

Of course, the hope is that you continue to practice over the break and really, every day outside of organized practice, but still--seven practices until CMAT!

Not to frighten you or suggest anything negative, but is that enough? What do you still need to do in order to feel confident going to competition? There is still some time, but how do you proceed?

In terms of timing, the placement of spring break couldn't be better if you intend to train hard over your days off. Spend this week really working on the details and the basics. Condition and run your forms intensely over break. Then, after pushing really hard the first part of the following week, do light practices the couple of days before competition. Then, BOOM! CMAT! Kick butt. And done!

But it all starts now! CMAT will be here before you know it! GO! GO! GO! GO! GO!
