One of the coaching clients is training for the NYC marathon, and she’s been gradually racking up the kilometres in the last four months.

She’s also managing a business and navigating family life with two kids.

It’s been hectic.

She’s on holiday this week, and we were discussing how her training should look for the week. It took us a few messages back and forth to come up with the most effective plan:

Do whatever she feels is right for her body and mind: chill. Relax. Take it easy. Rest.

Instead of doing what she feels she should be doing: more running and strength workouts.

Here’s where it’s at.

Reaching big goals takes a lot of discipline and focus. And that goes both for the work and the rest.

Especially as we get older.
