Discipline means doing what you have to do when you need to do it, whether you want to or not. Self-discipline – the only kind that lasts – is action oriented. It doesn’t procrastinate, and it doesn’t make excuses. It’s more than just setting a goal because it’s about committing to putting in the work that it’ll take to achieve it and sticking with the plan. The key is discipline.
The Freedom to Run mentality is your ability, and then your action of running or exercising without hindrance. But, in order to fully experience this freedom to run, we must be disciplined. There are numerous personal development and business books that discuss discipline as being a critical ingredient for success, overcoming obstacles and reaching your goals. But there are specific things you can do as an endurance athlete to improve your discipline.
It’s discipline in the small things. Doing the work and putting in the extra effort. Staying consistent day in and day out. Being disciplined to your training on the days you simply don’t feel like training. It’s staying committed to strength and flexibility workouts. And putting in the extra reps, extra sets and adding the weight when necessary.When you develop the discipline in training and nutrition, you experience the Freedom to Run! #DisciplineEqualsFreedom Click To Tweet
