If you don’t put yourself out there, you have zero chance

I was watching the Vuelta yesterday and enjoying Ben King finishing and thinking about the effort level when I watched his collapse after the finish line.

Chad Haga retweeted this tweet

which got me to read the piece Ben King wrote.

One of his favorite quotes was “direction, not intention, determines destination” (Andy Stanley). 

From his article I take the JA philosophy of ” If you don’t put yourself out there, you have zero chance. ” as well as ” Live in the moment but keep moving forward.”

It matters to me as my training has been affected a lot this year and I do realize that speed and capacity changes every year now, in ways I can’t expect.  So I need to focus on the fact that some of this are highs and lows and to make the most of every day!
