Lowering the Bar

The problem with setting your goals to high is the painful disappointment when you don’t succeed. It is inevitable at some point in your running you will reach your max. Time becomes a variable. There is nothing you can do that will change this path.
So why do we continue to think training hard is the panacea for every failed PR?
Failure - like an open sore won’t heal unless you:

  • adjust your focus.
  • accept loss and move on.
  • be happy with what you have (Yeah that’s right kara - count your blessings!)
  • ask yourself what really matters…
Starting today I will reduce my speed work to just one session a week. And not enter the 10miler race this October.
