November 6, 2009: Inspirational Words

Avon, Colorado – I got a little down on myself this afternoon and looked to my former trainer/coach for advice. He gave me a great pep talk, which basically came down to a few key principles:

  • Flip the switch (mentally) and do it now. Make changes in different aspects of life to shake things up
  • Things are not linear; find the big breakthroughs
  • Find and carry the speed, and it doesn’t have to be pretty or perfect
  • Be excited and don’t ever get negative or down on myself
  • There is a greater purpose to what I’m doing than just for fun and games
  • Don’t think too much. Getting down the course as fast as I can should be the primary focus. Think about Speed. Trust your abilities and equipment.

I’m so inspired I wish we were training tomorrow (we have it as a day off)!
