Focus on Today
Consistent training starts with stringing a few days in a row of uninterrupted training, which then leads to a few weeks, followed by a few months. It is only after approximately three months of consistent training where one begins to reach the adaptations they are seeking. To expect significant changes in a shorter amount of time is unrealistic. If your goal is to ride your bike 112 miles in six months, then the workout you are doing today (if prescribed appropriately) is the only thing you should be focused on. If you are looking to improve your body composition for a race you have in twelve weeks then you need to focus on what is on your plate today and not worry now about what you will eat two weeks prior to the race. In other words the best way to accomplish your future goal is to do what is presently on your plan today REALLY, REALLY WELL.
