No subsitutes

Last night I was speaking with someone @ the Splash-n-Dash about the Wed. night workout I coach for T3. This person told me that they like the workout because I make them laugh and I keep it interesting. In the same breath they said that others have gone elsewhere for training because they don't get what they want out of the workouts I coach. I have absolutely no issue with this as everyone is different.
BUT.......
You get out of a workout what you put into it. I see a lot of people who come and train and expect things to just come to them. That is sooo wrong!!!! You have to work your ass off to get what you want out of a workout. I don't care if you train with me, Gilbert, Jamie/Fish, Carmen or TNT....you have to put the work in. So many people now-a-days expect things to just be given to them. That's not the way it works. Sorry to burst anybody's bubble but if you want to get faster on the run you have to seriously put the time and work into the workouts and not go about them half ass'd.
Going to train with others isn't always the answer to getting faster. Sometimes that answer is looking back at you in the mirror.

Well said Logan. I had a friend compete in Coeur D'Alene today and it made me think of you. I hope you are well and I am sure you are an awesome coach. Be well and don't forget to look me up when (if) you ever run bike or swim in NYC.
