Meghan and Sean explore the ins and outs of the consistency required to train for endurance events. There is no magic pill to training, training sometimes requires an athlete to grind it out. Making excuses and turning into a weekend warrior only leads to disappointment and injury. The social mediaziation of endurance athletics isn’t the real story. The real story is the grit involved in the training. The tears and blood shed on the trails are the truths that Meghan and Sean address. Being disciplined is important for the results one is looking for. At times the priorities need to be adjusted to suit life’s requirements. Sometimes short term adjustments need to be made and we’d rather see a something done than an all or nothing approach to training. Finally, if you’re unsure if you want that commitment, go check out an event, see if it’s a community you want to be a part of. Just know nothing is free and it all takes grit.
