What is the domino effect of effort?
It is all about consistency and seeing the results over time. There will be many times I will be posting on rundreamachieve.com when an idea pops up or I read something that I feel will get your attention.
My wife bought me a Kindle and I bought the book over at amazon which transferred to the Kindle.
You may not see results as quickly as you want.
Truth of the matter is, it takes work and even more patience to get good at. If you are a 4 hour marathoner and you think 3 hours isn't possible. You need to take this quote into consideration cause I am here to tell you, it is. Running can become automatic but you have to lay the groundwork before the fitness gains can be seen.
Are you overweight and the thought of running a mile and getting fit is something you dread? You are certainly capable. If you have the motivation to try then you are already ahead of the game.
Take a look at this message.
Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over until the compound effect kicks in.
It doesn't matter if you're a 5K athlete, brand new to the sport or a running veteran.
The importance of patience and progression in your training cannot be denied. I have had some great races and some very poor efforts. I ran a 2.40 and 2.51 marathon before I ran 2.19. Two disappointing performances (for me) after having trained so hard. That being said, had I hung up my shoes after the 2.51 what an enormous experience and opportunity I would have missed out on.
I wasn't one of those athletes born with a great deal of talent. Furthermore, I am not a Nike sponsored athlete like Dathan Ritzenhein or a gold medalist like Frank Shorter. I relate much better to folks who simply train hard and use the most of what they have. It didn't come easy for me nor does it come easy to anyone else. We all have to put in the work.
You may not see the results today, or a month from now but your efforts will pay off if you're willing to accept the struggles along the way. The domino effect of progressive workouts is going to come together and your running performances will blow your mind.
Remember, success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. The domino effect is about not losing enthusiasm in the midst of setbacks. Everyone has to deal with challenges. The strongest and smartest don't give up.
