This past Canada Day, I turned the ripe age of 27. For a lot of reasons, this birthday was different than any other.
I think about that question a lot. Based on feedback from the athletes I’ve coached, repetition is not boring.
We need repetition, there is no skill acquisition or progressive overload without it. But how much is enough before it becomes mundane?
Growth in many ways is a very uncomfortable feeling. The things that make us better are often the very things we don’t want to do. Often, it’s our fear of failure that holds us back from participating in the challenges that will provide us the opportunity to grow into the people we want to become.
