Are you pushing your body beyond its adaptive threshold? It's a fine line and often the difference between burnout/flatline and real, sustainable improvement. Today is about "simple" but often neglected daily reasons you may not be improving. So, how do we break the cycle of little habits that are holding us back? 

Sleep

  • Make the time
  • It’s the littlest big thing
  • This is where recovery happens

How You Eat

  • From wake up to bedtime
  • Sleep sets your diet
  • Do you think less is more?
  • Is your fuel watered down?
  • How you start sets the tone
  • Breaking the cycle

Going Too Hard Too Often

  • Tapping into reserve vs. expanding it
  • It’s a gap between consistency and frequency
  • Respect your body
  • Going over the adaptation threshold
  • Minimal effective dose
  • Load management

Not Listening to Your Body

  • If not it will not listen to you
  • “It’s not that bad”
  • Pay attention
  • Always work on imbalance

Not addressing niggles and pain

  • Your body will do things to protect itself
  • Inflammation
  • Life is saying take a day off
  • Stay ahead with prevention

You are obsessed with Longer

  • Do you HAVE to do an Ironman?
  • Develop and be well rounded
  • Space out Ironman to find real improvement
  • Where does speed work fit into the toolbox?
  • Hill work as speed work
  • Do you work on skills you won’t use?
