I hate 400 meter repeats.
400 meter repeats are the devil. Think hate is a strong word? Well, I think it isn't strong enough. If I could, I'd punch 400 meter repeats in the mouth. I hate them more than wet socks, empty boxes of Oreo's left in the cabinet, and Sarah Palin. THEY SUCK SO MUCH.
However, 400 meter repeats are excellent for me. They are supremely effective, require a short amount of time, and prepare me for almost anything. I love the results of 400 meter repeats. I avoid them like the plague, and magically never seem to have the time to do them.
We all have crutches that we use to avoid the difficult and uncomfortable actions, that push us in the exact direction we want to be. Progress requires simplicity, and simplicity requires ruthlessness. Are you inventing distractions to avoid the important, effective, and uncomfortable actions your life needs?
