training (v. learning to improve performance; process of learning skills).
The first step in training is, one more. Long term goals inspire, but always focus on the present.
Just as you train your body, you must train your mind.
Training is misrepresented. It’s not a work out. It’s not practicing. You use work outs and practice to help you train.
practice (noun: repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it.)
work out (noun: a practice or exercise to test or improve one’s fitness for athletic competition, ability, or performance)
With cancer, my first step was to get up and take control of my health. Some days a step is showing up and that’s not a bad thing, it’s huge. I learned accept that there are days where momentum seems to be impossible. My job is one more step with the emphasis on quality.
Training is something that makes sense to me. I have a body and mind that is ready to be rebuilt, one step at a time.Kool Aid has been the method of training for triathletes. You think nothing of taking a few steps, knowing there was no way to become THAT athlete. Then you turn around and you’re signing up for an Ironman. Nope, that’s not my story.
Triathlons are the best kind of competition. It’s you against you. Yes, there are random other things you have to work against. Those are given, nothing you can do to change what they are doing.
To be a better cyclist they said running is how to do it. And it works.
I surround myself with talent. There is always someone better and I love to learn.
“Helpful thoughts energize you, un-helpful thoughts weaken you.”
I know WTH.
