Going from a 5K to an Ironman in a year and a half is tough work. So much of it is mental and, while our coach offers an excellent training plan and workout advice, one of his best assets is his ability to motivate. Here’s the latest edition of “Coach Speak” that he posted on the Fab Five Facebook page:
Last week I addressed the team as individuals. This week as a whole.
The Fab Five (occasionally with a +1) is not merely a group. I believe it’s a following, a journey. They follow each other as individuals, they follow the group as a whole, others follow them as individuals, and most follow them as a team.
They follow their dreams and goals as individuals. They are not merely “Crushing Iron.” They aren’t merely training for an epic day of human strength, will power, courage, and endurance in September. They ARE following their destiny and we are all privileged to be engulfed in the first few chapters of this novel.
When we are done reading this life altering novel. We won’t put it away. Well leave it on our coffee table, where we can see it. That way we can relive this journey many days and years after.
It’s always great to read words of motivation from someone who has been there and understands the process. When he’s not throwing quick witted jabs, he is really quite insightful.
Feel free to carry his words with you as well. We’re all in this together.
