Did you watch much of The Olympics the other week?

I’ll be honest, I saw a lot less than I had planned to watch.

No particular reason – just was usually doing something else.

Time of day it was on live, I suppose.

I saw a few of the races though.

And do you know what I noticed in every single one of them?

Even when they were behind the leader (which, by definition, all but one runner is)…………..

No one stopped.

No one wandered off the track and thought they might have another go later………..

Because they couldn’t “keep up”.

Everyone finished.

At their own pace.

But we’re tempted to do the same with other areas of life, aren’t we?

To think that we “can’t keep up”.

So stop.

We sometimes hear this from members, particularly when they first start with us.

“I can’t keep up”.

Or “I’m struggling to keep up”.

By which they mean they can’t do as much as the fitter members in a Session.

Or they can’t do as many Sessions in a week as they are aware some people are.

Or, perhaps, as they’d ideally like to do.

Or they’re not reading every single blog and watching every single video we do.

It all feels “too much”.

They “can’t keep up”.

But that’s fine.

There’s no keeping up to be done.

Doing what we can is always better than doing less than that, or nothing at all.

Working at our own level in as many Sessions as we can do and reading some blogs and watching some videos is always going to lead to better results than none of the above.

What someone else may or may not be doing is irrelevant.

Remember that next time you feel you “can’t keep up”.

There is no ‘keeping up’ to be done.
