Run my first 10k, 13.1 or 26.2 or BQ? AWESOME.
But where the heck do I start!?
Perhaps in your most courageous moments, you’ve made the commitment to start.
You’ve printed off new training plans online, watched a few Youtube videos, attempted to meal prep some meals you downloaded, and taken a few extra classes at the YMCA or your local gym.
If you’re super committed, maybe you even invested in other run programs or coaching programs set on impulse, assuring yourself that you’d use it in the mystical (yet elusive) “someday”.
But even with the best intentions, so many people end up abandoning their goals, allowing themselves to become defeated.
Here’s why many fall short and/or abandon their goals:
Without a super clear, step-by-step program, most would-be clients get completely lost.
They fall victim to very rigid or poorly designed programs (the experts always make it sound so easy), a time-sucking sticking point, or lack of clarity over exactly what they need to do on a run session or in a specific training block.
Here’s why this is irreversibly crippling.
As an already busy and frustrated individual; work, family, obligations, you literally can’t afford to veer off course.
And, the moment you get knocked off your schedule you feel it’s almost impossible to get back on track and recover.
Therefore, building a plan is one of the few things in your personal life that you NEED to get right the first time.
And luckily for you, there are actually VERY FEW people out there doing it right.
In all likelihood, your prior plans or programs have failed you because you had a hard time following them.
Even if you’re late to the party, there’s still a golden opportunity for you to jump in, clean up the mess and (start losing seeing tremendous improvement).
That is…if you can avoid the prior unsuccessful plans and hit the RESET button.
