There’s more that goes into marathon training for me than just running
It’s important to consider many different aspects that affect how well you’re going to be able to stay on track. This includes taking note of the amount of sleep I’m getting, how much I energy I’m using so I know how I need to adjust my daily calorie intake, how much energy I’m also using aside from running in my daily routine, if I’m getting fitter from training etc
If a piece of the puzzle is missing it’s important to be able to identify it so you can work on a new strategy to change it.
At the end of every training week I will sit down and reflect on how I’ve felt over the last 7 days in terms of getting the miles in, how tired I feel, how my joints and muscles feel, how strong I feel on the run etc.
Don’t just guess, because you’ll always underestimate a key factor that may be the missing piece to training to your true potential and looking after yourself. Control the controllables and forget about the rest.

Terlibat dalam masalah orang lain
Ketika ikut campur masalah orang lain, kita harus siap untuk terlibat penuh dalam masalah tersebut termasuk mencari cara untuk menyelesaikannya. Bagi orang kepo bukan tidak mungkin, mereka malah ikut terjebak dalam masalah yang dicampurinya.
Meski pun rata-rata orang kepo sebenarnya kurang peduli mencari solusi. Karena yang terpenting bagi mereka adalah pemenuhan hasrat keingintahuan semata.
Rasa keingintahuan orang kepo bisa menambah problem dalam hidupnya. Masalah yang sudah menumpuk jadi bertambah akibat kepo karena ikut-ikutan terlibat dalam masalah orang.
Mendapat predikat tidak baik
Mendapat pandangan rendah dari orang sekitar. Kita akan dinilai gemar mencampuri urusan orang tanpa diminta.

It all starts with a good nights rest.
A new week, a new day and a new opportunity to thrive and feel alive. It all starts with you taking care of yourself and giving your mind, body and soul time to rest.
Turn off your devices. Turn off the TV and let your mind be still. Over stimulation to technology is what causes so much stress and anxiety in the modern world.
You’ve got to know when to shut things off and connect with yourself. It’s okay to not be stimulated and entertained all the time!
Give yourself time before bed to prepare your mind and soul for rest. Meditate, journal, read something that calms the soul or simply just sit in silence and allow your mind to gently calm down.
A good nights rest is your best defence against feeling stressed out, anxious and unmotivated. It’s time for you to start managing your energy levels, so you can perform and function at a high level daily and feel energetic and passionate about your life.
Have a few simple routines and rituals you run in the evening or before you head to bed, that allow you to get a good nights rest every night. Do what works best for you, but remember the name of the game is ENERGY!
Consistent rest is the key and no doubt everyone is going to ask me the most asked question in the world... “Joe, how many hours sleep should I get?”
So the simple answer is that everyone is different and everyone’s lifestyle and energy needs are different. I generally say that you want to get between 6 hours to 8 hours of consistent rest every night.
The “consistent” part is what determines your energy levels. Not the hours of rest. So that means, you have to be in bed at the same time and up at the same time every day. Your body responds well to patterns and routines and it is through those basic routines that you find greater levels of energy, over time.
If you are making great decisions with your diet, exercising for energy, (rather than trying to gain muscle or lose weight) and looking after your mental and spiritual state. Then you will naturally have more energy and be able to live off slightly less sleep than someone who is not managing those other key factors.
