July 23rd – What Have We Learned?

Today was another reminder about the value that can be found in cross-training. I’ve found that giving my legs a couple of days a week to rest, and replacing the run with biking, swimming and weight training is slowly making me a better athlete. It’s also making me into a better runner. Why? Because by giving my legs rest on Sundays and Tuesdays allows me to perform better during my team workouts on Mondays and Wednesdays. And when I perform better during team workouts, I feel more motivated to work harder while pushing myself solo.

I need to work harder. But I also need to work smarter. And I’m as sharp as a bowling ball.
