Training Choices


I am typing this while I am warming up on a trainer getting ready for an early morning ride.

The alarm went off at 4:30 am. I had a choice, do I press snooze, do I not warm up, do I grab my coffee?

I got out of bed, prepped my bottles, aired up my tires, geared up(kinda) and started to spin out my legs.

You see when training for multi-discipline event, you have choices every day. Some good, some bad, and some neutral. As you get closer to race day, your body, if trained properly, starts to head over the over training present line. Those choices become more on the realm of, I will do it later, should I go harder, maybe I should quit because I may not be ready.

The choice is yours. Make the decision and own it. If it turns our great, awesome. If it turns out bad, oh well.

Make the choice and live with the outcome. Remember, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Make it an epic one and live with your choices. It’s never wrong or right. It is just an outcome.

I know that I may be the only one up this early warming up for a 4 hr ride. That is what makes me know it is the right choice. You are reading this while I am riding for hours.

See ya at the start line!
