Training This Week
Christmas day is all done and I’m now on holiday so very flexible with my time. Having said that, the best approach for training is to make sure it’s all done early on in the morning. I’m also planning in a few day trips for the holiday so if I continue the trend of early morning training, this won’t interfere with the holiday plans.
An important thing to remember of course is that if you miss a day of training, don’t beat yourself up, there’s always tomorrow. Focus on what’s important and the long term goal is the important part. Keeping focused on this will ensure that even if you do miss a training day (or more), that picking back up with the schedule will get you back on track to achieve your goal.
