Lessons from Silverman - Part 4

Flexibility is Key
We don't get anywhere is we can't go with the flow. Changing training to allow for family time or work or to allow an injury to heal can save a race. Blindly following a schedule with unbreaking adherence despite lack of recovery time or personal time is a good way to get injured or burned out. Sometimes sleeping in or a trail run with friends will go further then dragging in the pool or another track workout. It's that go with the flow attitude that helps with managing the unexpected tasks - both in training and in life. Cultivating flexibility while still keeping an eye on your goals will reduce stress and translate into more enjoyment of the process.
