Goals are relative
It's difficult to measure progress if you don't have goals written down. This mornings swimming session brought this to mind. We did a long hard session and being passed in the same lane by the better swimmers on a number of occassions can be disheartening however when I got to the end I had taken over a minute off the time set for the same exercise the previous week. Therefore the session was successful but had I based it on the other people around me I wouldn't have come to the same conclusion. We all go at a different pace and some are better at different things. I know that when we start running then I will be faster than some of the swimmers and that just goes to show that triathlon and life have a lot in common.
