The time has come for us to get to work.
We have been intentional in our training up until this point, however we are now going to bring in even more structure.
The race season is quickly coming and I want everyone to be able to enjoy the events in the way that they are hoping.
However hope is not enough. We cannot just wish to do well. We have to put in the time and the work.
Just like math class. We cannot just hope to do well. We have to listen in class, we have to take notes, we have do our homework and then study for the test. So when the test comes we are not hoping to do well, but we have prepared and put in the necessary work.
This is just like any physical endeavor. Once you set the goal, you need to put the work in and their are different kinds of work that need to go into it.
Not only is their physical work that needs to go into it you also need to prepare yourself emotionally and mentally. We will spend some time working on all facets.
I have put forth this challenge to everyone all last week, so I am excited to see you all tomorrow excited and motivated to put in some hard work. We need to arrive with positive spirits for this work and honor our abilities to do it.
I believe in every rider on this team to be strong and courageous.
Parents over the next three weeks please help me in encouraging your riders to be as consistent with practice as possible. Consistency is the cornerstone off all my lessons. Through consistent work we can learn to trust ourselves to be able to do the work. We need to practice being the person we want to be. Consistency is also how we learn to be disciplined.
Discipline is how we learn to persevere when things get hard and I believe to be one of the most important characteristics to a healthy life.
So this the kind coach plea to help me encourage your riders to have excellent attendance the next three weeks.
