Run Twice As Fast

“It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that.”

I came across this quote from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass and agreed with the message on a number of levels. First off, as a business major I keep hearing this advice over and over again. If you want your company to be successful, it’s critical to innovate constantly. If the company doesn’t want to change, then they will be left in the past.

At YoungTri, Caity and I collaborate daily coming up with new ideas to make YoungTri bigger and better!

Furthermore, it’s imperative to “to run at least twice as fast” in triathlon. If you want to make progress; if you want to be better, you have to push yourself. Repeatedly doing the same routine workouts will not shape you into a better athlete if you’re not challenging yourself.

If you want to be the best, you need to put in even more effort than you did in your last workout. Improve everyday.

Today YoungTri challenges you to challenge yourself. Set a high goal for your workout and go achieve it (however, don’t surpass your limit and hurt yourself)!

Have a great training day and a Merry Christmas Eve if you celebrate it! 🙂
