As the 2018 race season comes to a close, it is time to reflect upon all things training and racing. Reflection defined means “serious thought or consideration.” Whether you are an age group athlete or a pro, a middle of the packer or you’re just happy to finish, reflection will provide great insight into the next steps of your journey.
Designate a time on your calendar to sit down for 45 minutes and allow yourself time to reflect. If you are like many athletes, you may need that appointment to be listed on your training plan to add the accountability. Protect the time and deem it to be as important as any of the training segments that you completed. Take the 5/5/5 approach. Focus your reflection on 5 celebrations, 5 challenges and 5 goals from your past year.
