How do you feel after a training session and is it normal?  This document shows the fatigue profile after four different types of training session and may help you understand what is "normal" and what is "good fatigue", which, after all, leads to a positive adaptation.

Some ideas for athletes to consider as we train through the long, cold, wet and windy days and nights of winter....

  1. Those who say they can and those who say they can't, both are usually right

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

  3. When people can't do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can't...you do not have to let them know that you are ignoring them!

  4. Set yourself 3-5 targets for this season

  5. 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. In training "If you're going through hell, keep going" because your dream is on the other side of hell
