Indeed, sad news from the world of Cricket. There's an interesting article on the BBC today about sportsmen deaths.
Having just had a monster read back of the last week the post that sticks out for me today is (and I've extracted the best bits)
I'd say mostly consistency. Basically for the last 2 years I've only had 3 periods when I haven't been able to train as planned: ......you need the PMA as well as the training.
I couldn't agree more. If I'm positive in my mind when I train then I train well, if I have a bad session or few days of bad training then this seems to knock my confidence and I start to be less positive about my training.
The biggest leap in my performances followed a consistent section of training, resulting in my first sub 90 half, and this seemed to elevate me to believing I could run faster generally, and generally I have.
Confidence in training give confident performances....
Or Consistent Consistency.
Talking of CC - Jantasitc kicks off again soon - seeing as we did pretty well last year as a thread, anyone up for a repeat performance?
I like that they are planning on linking it to Strava this year, and having on ly just discovered Strava I'm quite excited about what they are planning...
Now just need to catch up with a years worth of MT podcasts. Good to hear Poacher is making an appearance - but I thought that sort of Media Ta*ting was only to be seen on the Sub3 thread.
