This week is John Wooden Week.  5 motivational quotes from this coaching genius.  Let’s start with this one:

Motivation 33.jpg

Week 2 of training starts today. I need to learn from past mistakes so I improve this year. I’m beating the hell out of myself in my 50th year.

3am start time.  Morning strength training, 30 minutes on the bike and a 45 minute run.  Working hard. Moving slow – but working hard.

Really fatigued by 5pm.  I knew I was going to feel like this  – today I began intermittent fasting, where my fueling window opened up at 1pm, and closed at 7pm.  This change, plus being on medication, really did a number on me by noontime.  I made sure to take in a decent amount of protein and drank a ton of water to get me through the day.  This adjustment is not a minor one, in any way, shape or form.
