Half Way! REflect and refocus

One thing we can forget to do when we are moving towards a goal is to stop and see the progress we have made. Although it makes sense as we are still looking towards the end target but it's so important that we stop along the way, take a moment to see our progress and celebrate this. 

You have now reached the half way point in the programme. When we started training together you may have looked at the programme and thought that it seemed nearly impossible, but you have kept turning up each week and have kept on challenging yourself to take the next step forward.

We still have a few more challenges in front of us but take a moment to pat yourself on the back.

Because we have hit the half way point it's time to do some mental reward work.

At this point we can sometimes still only see the big steps that we have in front of us, that's why we have this list of questions below for you to answer that will help you realise what you have gained to this point and may help you stay motivated till the end of the programme. You can choose to just think about your answers or you can write them down, it's entirely up to you. 

1. What are the physical benefits that I am feeling from the training I have been doing? 

2. Which sessions have I enjoyed the most and why did I enjoy them? 

3. What are the mental benefits that I have experienced from doing the programme? 

4. Why should I be proud of what I have done? 

5. What have I learnt about myself that I can take into other areas of my life? 

6. If the current 'you' could go back 4 weeks ago what would you tell yourself about how well you have done? 

By thinking about these questions we realise that we have made progress. This creates a feeling of success which is important in creating belief in our ability to achieve our goal. While there is still work to be done the more you build your belief the higher the chance that you are going to make it to that 10k finish line in a way you are proud of.


This is speech from Al Pacino in the movie Any Given Sunday to watch when you are struggling to put your running shoes on and get out the door!


  • If you would like to help your body out, get a sports massage for those tight muscles. We recommend the team at Active Health. They know our programmes and are the same team how do the Muscle Balance Tests. 
     
  • Headlamps are Helpful!
    We recommend you get one, particularly for the morning crew for the dark morning sessions. You can buy them relatively inexpensively from Bunnings or The Warehouse (on the battery stand). 
     
  • Remember to stay focused and keep turning up ;-). 
     
  • Keep up your great work. 

'There will be days that you have every excuse under the sun not to go to a session. These are the very sessions that you absolutely HAVE to go to as these are the ones that give you the best sense of achievement.'  – Pam Thomas
