The Secret To Getting Fast

Getting fast is boring.

  1. Put in the work – day in and day out.
  2. Don’t miss workouts.

I used to think good coaching was about complicated interval workouts.  Then I got a coach and she sent me the most simple workouts.  I thought she didn’t know what she was doing.

  • “Bike 60 minutes push the hills 80%”
  • “Run 40 minutes EZ”

I blew away all of her and my expectations under her guidance.  Little did I know that this is the approach all good coaches take.

Getting fast is hard but not difficult.  .

The secret is that there is no secret.

    Totally agree. One of the most important components that I was missing was…sleep. I wasn’t getting enough sleep so when I would see on a Saturday work out a line item that said an hour nap it was like excuse me, I can’t take a nap. Oh then there was before bed eat full fat ice cream. Huh? A nap and ice cream. Yep, the fat in the ice cream makes you sleep longer and a nap is a well deserved one. Always on my list now.

    Love the blogs, please keep them up. I look forward to them.

    Yay! Needed to be reminded of that simplicity can propel you to knew heights, as well as NEW PRs!
