Whoops! I almost forgot:
Quote of the day: Success is a continuing thing. It is growth and development. It is achieving one thing and using that as a stepping stone to achieve something else. John C. Maxwell
So I guess I can apply that to my new training plan. I am growing and developing. I am using this achievement as a way to achieve a bigger goal--running races again. From there, I will use it to hopefully attain a bigger goal--an IM race. Not this year of course, maybe next if I continue to progress, even with little jumps to the next stepping stone.
Every athlete especially needs to keep this in mind. Stepping stones.
