Will 2013 be the year that you kick your BUTs butt???

“I’d like to lose weight coach, but…”

” I was on pace to run ___  but then…”

“I could have been top in my ____  but…”

” I would have made Kona but…”

“I wish I had more time to train but…”

We all love to explain away our shortcomings and are quite skilled at it.  It’s how we protect our egos, recover from disappointment,  and cover up what might be a lack of  preparation for achieving our goals.   It’s part of being human and we all do it.. BUT…

What if this is the year that you listen to yourself and define what are your limiters.  Listen to yourself in conversation with other athletes and listen for the BUT.  Once you do that, you have the beginnings of your 2013 training plan.   If you need an ear, hire a coach to listen for an hour or get yourself a great journal and get started!  ; )

In 2013, be an athlete who is satisfied but motivated to do more.   Motivate yourself to kick your BUTs butt in 2013.  No more excuses. Let’s work on concrete solutions!!!
