Failure to plan is like planning to fail
March 28, 2013
Today started out quite well. I went to RunCamp and as there was no-one else there, I had a private session. We should have been focussing on breathing, but that was OK on Tuesday and I’ve got a slight cold, so Ant asked what I wanted to work on. I wasn’t sure, so we decided to go back to some drills focusing on foot position and heel lift. I received some positive feedback, so I think that if I can get back in control of my diet, I may be able to do well at parkrun.
I’ve realised that although my aim is to complete an Ironman triathlon by the time I’m 40, I haven’t really planned very well to ensure that it happens, so I thought I’d start sketching out my plans now. I’ve decided to have a goal for each of the disciplines each year as well as having a triathlon related goal. I will try to develop this further over the next few weeks, so that I am planning appropriately.

Unfortunately, I didn’t accomplish as much as I should have done at work today, so I didn’t make it to running this evening, but as I’m very tired, I’m taking it as a rest day. I’ve also got a new issues of ‘Cycling for Women’ that I was given by a running colleague yesterday and the latest issue of 220 to read in bed tonight 🙂
