Re: training in the long haul
Since I am one of several folks who have sort of sidetracked this from the OP...I'm going to post something to try and swing it back :-)
Training in the long haul to me means....
1. keeping it fresh by continuing to get out and explore, then bringing back home anything of value, be it a small bit of advice or an overhaul of approach
2. allowing myself to change how I train based on demands of a changing body for better or for worse
3. continuing to engage with beginners in an open and engaged way in order to pay back my seniors and to help keep myself sharp because it's the beginners whose bodies and questions can be so reality-testing
