039: Going All-In

podcast running Jun 07, 2018


What's the point of training if you're not all-in?  Do you believe in your training plan?  Do you believe in your support system?  Do you believe in yourself??

Today's society seems to be overruled by FOMO, the fear of missing out.  People are always looking for the next best thing and don't want to be left behind.  People are always second guessing if what they are doing is the best thing or if there is something better waiting around the corner.

What's the best training plan for you?   In truth, there are a lot of good training plans out there, and most of them work.  There are some that have more focus on distance and some focus more on speed, but most will work.  However, they aren't going to work if you don't commit to them or if you jump from plan to plan looking for the fastest results.

Buy in.  Commit.  Succeed.  That's the theme of today's episode.  

We talk about: 

  • Belief in your training plan
    • There are lots of training plans that work.  Pick one and stick to it.  Don't jump from one to the other without giving the plan enough time to work.
  • Belief in your support system
    • Surround yourself with runners, friends, coaches that want YOU to succeed
    • Communicate with those people so that they know how best to help you
  • Belief in yourself
    • The challenge of doing something that has never been done
    • If you fully commit, the results are then on your shoulders
    • If you don't fully commit, you are always giving yourself a built-in excuse
    • The importance of different workouts to build physical and mental toughness and confidence
    • The importance of remembering your why, especially if things don't go exactly as planned
    • The importance of accepting responsibility for your outcome
