“We do not rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.” - Archilochus
As we started the training cycle we talked about progression and how it’s not always completely linear but should still trend upward over time. Easy to say, harder to do. How can we most effectively attain our ultimate goals, when our expectations are light years ahead of where we are right now? Setting goals and developing lasting habits to reach them is important, but it’s tempting to focus only on your goals or expected end results and not on the “dirty work” that will ultimately give you that success. Stop shooting for the ceiling, and instead raise your floor. This is a concept I’ve become a big fan of, and is at the core of Des Linden’s famous “keep showing up” mindset. Set yourself up for success now by doing the work, no matter how insignificant it might seem this early in the season.
