Good Morning race fans and supporters: 6:56 am and just back from the gym. What does it take to get in shape for the Rolex 24 Hour or other races……Some of the younger drivers have the luxury of long workouts and strong, unworn joints. As the senior ‘shoe’ in the group, there is a long history of torn rotator cuff, strained ligaments, sprains, a few breaks, and a bit of arthritis. Daily work outs for flexibility and endurance strenght – lighter weights – more reps – can keep us going. Eight months of workouts – 4 to 7 days/week prior to the Rolex 24 Hour and it worked! Strong in the car, good concentration, no cool suit, double stint – could have driven for many more hours. Summer races are tougher – hotter temperatures in the car can reach over 125 degrees F. and some tracks are tight – without the long breather banking and straights of Daytona. We will keep at it – no breaks. Are you ready to go racin?
