If you are an endurance training junkie or a competitive athlete then you know that you have to put in the effort to get the results you need. So what is the one trait that separates the good competitors from the great ones? Well, I would have to say that aside from an effective training program it would have to be their mental focus.
So how important is self-motivation when it comes down to training for OPTIMAL performance and making gains in your cardiovascular fitness program? There is no doubt that you must have a strong mind and a great deal of inner-drive in order to keep pushing yourself. No trainer, no coach, and no psychologist can give you that “edge.” You must have that on your own in order to succeed!
When it comes down to you finishing that last mile in your run, executing that final kettlebell snatch, or executing that final series of hurdle bounds you have to be willing to force yourself through the pain. The old saying “No Pain, No Gain” rings true in this context and I would even coin the phrase “More Pain, More Gain!” So when you train are you pushing yourself to the max? Are you getting the most out of what you are trying to accomplish?
Let it sink in before going out next time to do your business. Cardiovascular fitness is a broad spectrum and there are many ways to obtain it all of which are not that easy to achieve.
