I made a mistake…
It occurred to me last week my training plan has a fatal omission.
It’s only 4 weeks til I fly out to New Zealand and without this one thing, I’m in big trouble without it.
How could I have missed this in my planning?!
This thing – that’s super important and (apparently) life threatening is my Yonder Goal.
My Yonder Goal.
The goal after I’ve done this….the next thing for me to focus on when I get back.
I know from past experience that it is super easy to work hard towards something, rock up to race day, event day or fitness testing day and complete the challenge I had set for myself and then get lost in the busyness of life.
Weeks go by.
A few months pass.
And I’m sorta training.
Hit and miss and a wandering fool.
For me, having a Yonder Goal gives me clarify and focus.
It’s not something I have to work on now or worry about, but it’s planting the seed so that when I fly back into Australia, I’ll know how much down time to have, and then get back on the horse again.
I haven’t come up with my Yonder Goal yet and will let you know when I do…but I’m glad I realised it now with 4 weeks to go and not 4 weeks after I get back!
And one last thing.
I know that not everyone is not wired like me, so this will either resonate with you or it won’t.
Take what works for you and discard the rest.
