10/23/2013 Training Journal / Keeper Quotes

October 23, 2013 — Leave a comment

Just a few scattered things I read today and thought I’d share/post…

From an article titled, “Should You Be Coached?”

“Harry Chapin, in a song called Mr. Tanner, about a baritone from the midwest, penned the line, “he did not know how well he sang, he only heard the flaws.” Some of us train that way. We’re really hard on ourselves. It can be fairly destructive.”

“Golfing legend Lee Trevino is quoted as having said, “It’s not the arrow; it’s the Indian.” “

From a race website:

“Stadiums are for spectators. We runners have nature and that is much better.”
– Juha Väätäinen

I always stick this somewhere on each page of my training plan…it caught my eye again today:

“Do the work. Do the analysis. But feel your run. Feel your race. Feel the joy that is running.”
– Kara Goucher
