I have notedthat with my training, and with anything that has a larger goal to it, its the so-called tiny decisions that make success or failure a reality.
With training, its the decisions to go out in the early morning, its the choice of snack, its the small micro decisions, which include how you talk about yourself, whether I am taking care of my sleep, what I snack on. It takes a thousand micro decisions to achieve a monumental task. Discipline is a thousand assigned decisions focused on a larger goal.
My smaller decisions have included poorer ones lately, but my goals have been largely unfocussed with no races in sight until the fall and work keeping me so busy and focused.
