Preaching to the Choir

It was around this time last year that I started writing up my Training Manifesto series, which was basically a brain dump of the things I had compiled over time in my head. Part of it was out of frustration over what I kept reading about from various sources online and knew was misleading most people to workout differently than they should, and part of it was as a reminder to myself to avoid the same common pitfalls many athletes experience each year.

Well, I couldn't have said it much better than this. You just have to remember - patience, consistency, and long term vision are the keys to getting and STAYING fast.

Don't sacrifice your short term goals, if your longer term goal is to get faster.

Bah! But it's SOOO hard to do! When you're feeling good you almost can't help yourself but to take advantage of it and push a little harder. Patience is a game mastered by the seasoned athlete, and often undermined by those like myself.

I'm sure I've fallen into the trap of saying, "I WANT TO BE INJURY FREE... CHECK OUT MY WORKOUT THAT INVOLVES TONS OF HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING!!" :o)

It definitely doesn't hurt to keep hearing/reading sage advice like this over and over and OVER again. Good stuff!
