I JUST FINISHED A BOOK THAT HAS ME FREAKIN PUMPED UP! Pumped to train my lycracovered heinie off. To pedal morning, day and night. Plus, way more pushups and pull ups and strength stuff. It has nothing to do with bicycle racing...
... and everything to do with getting after it.
A few quotes:
- I don't do shit for applauses. I don't do shit for fanfare. I do it for me.
- I don't think about yesterday. I think about today, and getting better.
- If you want to be pushed to your limits, you have to train to your limits
If you're into getting better, you're gonna love this book, Living With a Seal, by Jesse Itzler. Jesse invites superendurance athlete and ex-Navy Seal David Goggins to live with him for a month and train him...
... he destroys him, day after day.
The day after day of being pushed to his limits is so motivating. It's just ridiculous some of the things they do. And it got me really thinking how predictable my own training has become.
Yes, I have a process that's worked really well. But, I think it's time to shake it up a bit/a lot. Set some new goals. Try some new methods. Helk, I might even get a power meter again.
As I look over the things I want to accomplish this year... well, I think I can do a helluvalot more. My RaceDay Calendar™ is gonna be key to make that happen.
I keep thinking how cool it would be if I'd had these calendars for all my years of racing. Such a great way to memorialize the things we do.
