For many athletes, a race is the culmination of weeks and months worth of hard and focused training. The question that is always asked is "How hard is too hard?" when discussing a race.
Many athletes often train in a gray zone and thus are never able to find their "racing zone" when it comes to races. I was once told that one of the biggest mistakes endurance athletes make is not training hard enough on hard days and training too hard on easy days. This will leave an athlete too tired to race well and lacking enough hard efforts to really put forth a race effort.
