Instead of looking just at the times in your races, embrace the life lessons that can come from the journey of an extended speed training program. Most of your runs must have some fun in them to help you through this journey. Even after a hard workout, focus on how good you feel afterward, and on the satisfaction from meeting the challenge.
The reality of a speed training program is that you’ll have more setbacks than victories. But, you will learn more from the setbacks and they will make you a stronger runner – and a stronger person. Confronting challenges is initially tough, but leads you to some of the great treasures of the improvement process. As you dig for deeper resources, you find that you have more strength inside than you thought – as you discover the path to them.
