Letters. I had forgotten how useful they can be. This is something that it was not good to forget.
I used to know that without the Letter H we would be up Sit creek! I used to know that without H Popeye would have given us, "Enoug is Enoug and Enoug is too muc!" No power there.
What am I talking about? Well, I used to do this thing in training where I would award myself a letter towards spelling the name of the event I was training for after completing a key workout. For instance, when I first cracked the top ten at Arkansas in 2006, during training when I ran really well or added on mileage, I gave myself an A. Then next time an R, and after my training was Complete, I spelled Arkansas Traveller. I had a lot of key workouts over time.
Then I got injured, failed at the Slam, and now I just run. No wonder I suck these days. My training is not to the letter. When I used Key workouts I was a motivated specific, now I'm a wandering generality.
Time to get back to the letter of the law of training! Too, late for Kettle, guess I can't retire just yet, I have to try this again. . .
