Keep Training Through The Ups and Downs of Life!

Training for races is never a simple endeavor. Just like life, training has its ups and downs. The trick is to try to expand on the ups and minimize on the downs. And I say "minimize" because in most cases the downs cannot be prevented, such as a family emergency, or a viral bug, or some stress at work. We need to make sure we can manage them in the best way possible without much interruption in your normal routine...and your training.

Remember that training should be the backbone of your schedule and that some form of it needs to be done. Even if it needs to be reduced due to some emergency, that's a lot better than cutting it out entirely.

If you can just run one mile, or you can only have 15 minutes to do core training in your house or apartment, it's a heck of a lot better than doing nothing. Trust me on this. Get those 15 minutes in! Because when the emergency passes at least you'll still have some momentum to keep the training going.
