What motivates me to go on a 3 1/2 hr low E ride on a day like today, with the wind gusting and the Temps low enough to freeze your lips together.
Sometimes it may be Team mates or a personal goal that maintains one's focus, maybe its something inside us to drive to higher levels so we can fulfill our lives with some type of self accomplishment.
Maybe, but today my motivation was force fed by my daughter Savannah. It happen like this, I got my core work done and was pounding excuses not to do my 3 1/2 hr training ride, when I happen to see Savannah's training schedule on the end table.
This is a personalize softball pitching schedule she has made and tailored for herself, I had no influence what so ever (or Did I?)
It was laid out AIR THRU 150, SNAPS 1000, ARM CIRCLES 300, pingerlims 100, power pitches 60, she does her training in our garage we have everything she needs set up and ready, but it is colder in there then outside. At the very bottom of her Training diary she had a blank, what did I do well today? And a blank what needs more work, and then it was the mother of all Questions HONESTLY DID I TRY MY HARDEST??? So on my ride I would ask myself is it I who is teaching Savannah good work ethics thru self example or is she motivating me to perform up to my potential?
either way it’s a win, win, at the end a 3 1/2 hr ride some food and off to her pitching clinic where she would whirl balls 50 MPH at me for another two hrs. So the answer for today YES I honestly tried my best, I will now ask myself this Question everyday. THANKS SAVANNAH!!!
