Snow! If you live in St. Louis, MO then you either love it or hate it.
Regardless of where your feelings fall on the pendulum, if snow is covering your driveway, and you’ve got to get out, then you need a plan.
Let’s start with simply shoveling the driveway. This requires the smallest amount of money, but the largest amount of physical work.
Goals for the New Year
A few years back I had a coach helping me to train for Ironman Florida. I recall one swim session that she assigned with the following task. “Swim: 500m; would like you to ease into the first 100m then start to descend your pace. I would like you to have one of the stronger swim splits in your AG because your swim is indeed very strong. Your goal is to negative split the swim getting faster each 100. Only you will know if you do that so when you report back to me - consider if you achieved this goal.”
The beauty of this assignment was that she helped me to focus on what I could control. No matter what kind of day I was having, I could descend my effort and all I had to do was execute or produce this outcome. Which got me thinking about what goals can I set and win? What challenges can I make for myself that I can reach-with some effort and then feel good about it? What would inspire me to work and push to reach it?
