From our first Fryerside Chat:
(keep in mind this was from a 1 hour workshop, so I limited the attendees to picking one thing)
Questions to ask yourself to address where you are currently? Where do you want to go? Lastly, how to are you going to get there?
(As it relates to riding, since it was a mtb workshop)
1: What would you change from 2018 in order to make 2019 an even more rad year?
2: If you could only pick on thing from question 1, what would it be?
3: In your opinion, what would be the best way to go about changing this?
4: How can you break this goal up into small, medium, and long term goals?
I know this all seems like simple, planning for success 101 silliness, but you'd be amazed at how many people can't answer it.
Remember the keys to success in planning and execution of next year's training plan:
1. Have a plan. Know where you want to go and how you're going to get there.
2. Be consistent. Rome wasn't built in a day.
3. Periodically test yourself to make sure you're on track. This can be in the form of weight tracking, performance testing, test races, etc.
4. Remember "If plan A fails, there are 25 other letters"-Chris Guillebeau
