I really like cross training – that is mixing it up in the way that I train frequently.
One of the sessions I’ll hit about twice a week is an interval sprint + jog.
I just picked this one back up again after a few weeks on a different training schedule and the temptation to crack it at the same level I was at before.
As I was returning to this I brought it down a notch and as the last few minutes counted down it was tempting to just push really hard.
The discipline was in pushing and yet that over doing it in one session.
“To make the quickest progress, you don’t have to take huge leaps. You just have to take baby steps—and keep on taking them. In Japan, they call this approach kaizen, which literally translates as ‘continual improvement.’ Using kaizen, great and lasting success is achieved through small, consistent steps. It turns out that slow and steady is the best way to overcome your resistance to change.” (Shimoff).
What could be slow and steady for you today?
