Motivation to get up and out a training for our sports and activities is a challenge that we need to cultivate. Using social media, pictures and images can help us a little but maybe we need new challenges to get that major incentive, some new equipment, new place to train, a new race to run, new muscles to develop.
This year I have repeated one race, Confrentes mountain triathlon, Normally I prefer to change my yearly goals but this race was so much fun that I had to give it another go. And it didn't disappoint.
Staying at the hostel and spa, was also new joining in the pre and post race meals too meeting new people. A great atmosphere from beginners to elite racers, 26km mtb, 4km run, 4km kayak and 10km mtb to finish. And what a finish as you come up the hill into the main square there is a very steep climb and the are a group of drummers that really motive you to make it even when your muscles are about to cramp up you know you can't fail here.

I have been reading Arnold Schwarzenegger's new biography Total Recall, One clear message from this sporting and movie legend in that you have to have a plan, a goal to stay focused to achieve but also change is necessary to develop; this comes from his years training his muscles to grow,
So for now don't forget to surprise your workout, shock your muscles get a new routine try and new sport or activity
