What’s the hurry? Take your time. Easy does it. Allow the adaptation process to run its course. The goal is to be ready at the appointed time, not before or after. No quick fixes, stop gap measures or secret workouts. Just allow the wisdom of the body to take effect. Different physical properties and capacities adapt at different rates. Learn what each individual needs and train accordingly. It is a process that is highly individual, somewhat event and sport specific and highly training age dependent.
Anytime you think you need to try speed up the process just heed the words of Simon and Garfunkel in the 59th Street Bridge Song:
Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.
What cha knowing?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
