Zensah Athletes Looking to Go to Rio Range from Long and High Jumpers to Hurdlers.
Zensah®, the premium athletic apparel brand, announced today that several athletes including Garrett Huyler, Norris Frederick, and Jarret Eaton will represent Zensah® at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Track and Field at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, OR taking place from July 1-10.
To qualify for the Olympic Trials is an incredible feat in and of itself. More incredible than that is the fact that once you qualify you must somehow find that extra-gear to train harder and push yourself even farther than before. Simply incredible. We were able to ask Andrea some questions about how she has prepared for the 2016 Marathon Trials:
Preparing For The Olympic Trials – Andrea Duke
How are you preparing for it?
Workouts have been pretty intense, pushing the limits in at least 2 workouts a week. I took the summer to train for shorter races, working on speed and getting the leg turnover to sharpen up, knowing I wanted to improve my speed for the Trials. That helped build my confidence for workouts and race day, knowing I was improving. The big challenge for me was the mental training, as I run with my emotions on the front of my brain, so it was important for me to stay positive and have perspective in the build-up to Los Angeles.
