Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To Strada who has a ton of athletes fleet data including a lot of my own January nineteenth is quitters day. That's the day that the largest number of people break their New Year's resolutions tient nineteen days. Last I checked a year is three hundred sixty five days long then. Twenty twenty is actually three hundred sixty six days long because this is a leap year. This reminds me a lot of some really bad races. I've run I started out way too fast and totally flamed out. The whole rest of the race ended up being one. Big Struggle. Seems like the same things going on here and I've certainly been guilty of this. Whether it's been the start of a new year or starting out in a new role I've busted out sprinting at an unsustainable pace the solution to all this is another racing strategy called the negative split Wikipedia. GPA describes the negative split as a racing strategy that involves completing the second half of a race faster than the first half it's defined by the intentional Setting of a slower initial pace followed by a gradual or sudden increase of speed towards the end of the race. Same article suggests that the advantages check this strategy are that it helps build discipline subverting. The natural instinct to begin running as fast as possible. Progressively increasing speed in any race allows the runner to focus on passing each person running directly ahead in every race. That I've personally done well in and felt good about. This is why it went well. I started out conservatively and was able to continually build speed and momentum throughout and with any luck still had enough for a solid sprint sprint. The finish so think about how this might apply to your year. I don't remember if I've talked about this publicly or not. But most of what I do can be better here. Described as habits setting rather than goal setting. I know that if I'm consistent in my habits and core activities that the resulting goals become more or less automatic the key is consistency. It's pointless setting up activity goals. That are only sustainable for a short period of time instead instead I personally think it makes more sense to start at a pace that slower than what you know. You can maintain than slowly incrementally Kelly and methodically continued to build and build until you are just a monster of execution. I believe this is a far more sustainable Strategy that will keep you from giving up on your new personal strategy after just nineteen days and instead put you on track to keep it going for one hundred ninety ninety days and beyond and not. Just keep it going but continuing to build building your endurance your stamina your confidence and if you do all that it's almost impossible missile to not achieve the results you desire. Maybe you've already fallen off yourself. Happens to all of us. Don't feel like you're done for the rest of the year and give up that's nuts. January first is totally artificial. Look at your own planned actions and do a reset or maybe you're still on track but you know you're on a collision course with burnout or another issue. Reevaluate those goals and give some thought to potentially backing off a bit for now and giving yourself some room to grow. There's just something psychologically gratifying about achieving consistently at ever increasing rates it builds a ton of confidence which becomes a powerful positive feedback. Loop that keeps you going instead of putting yourself in a position where after just just a couple of weeks you feel like a failure and feel like you've messed up yet again which is a downward negative spiral that you definitely don't want to associate with
