Blake and her family have been on the road the past few weeks, from the east (Plymouth) to the west (Hawaii). The time changes have played a little havoc with Quin’s nap schedule, but haven’t set back Blake’s training schedule.
“It hasn’t been too bad. Sometimes I have problems if I’m racing in a different time zone. Like if I’m racing at 7:30 a.m. in Florida, my body still thinks its 4:30 a.m. If it’s a big race I set time aside to get adjusted.
“The worst is track races at night. I once had a 10:30 p.m. race at Stanford. It was the best time weather-wise, but waiting around was the worst.”
