Information for our training group at Halesowen Athletics Club, which is based around Sprints, Jumps, Throws, Hurdles and CE

This season starts today and ends on September 30th next year.  Here are a SIX ideas:

  1. Those who say they can and those who say they cannot, BOTH are generally right

  2. See into the future, dream of what YOU want to become

  3. When people cannot do something themselves, they readily and comprehensively tell you that you cannot, they tell you why, they tell you good reasons to fail.  These people will achieve NOTHING IN LIFE and will ALWAYS be having DESTRUCTIVE CONVERSATIONS with THOSE WHO DARE TO DREAM

  4. Set yourself 3-5 targets for this season that are relevant to YOUR DREAM

  5. It will be tough, it will be hard and you WILL WANT TO QUIT, TO STOP, TO TAKE A REST.  Pain is temporary, it may last a minute, an hour, a day or a week, but it WILL subside and something else will take its place.

  6. You WILL GO THROUGH HELL in pursuit of YOUR DREAM.  When you are going through hell, keep going.Your DREAM IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF HELL.
