What does it mean to dream? Does it entail abstract wishes and longing for impossible realities? Is it a solitary act, done alone or only in one’s own head? While this may be the case when you lay your head against your pillow at night, dreaming is really the first spark of action toward a goal. It is the pathway to a plan, and the start of an exciting journey toward a rewarding accomplishment.
What does your goal look like this year?
Whether you have a podium spot in mind, a specific time for the clock to read when you cross that finish line, or you just want to try something new—one of the most rewarding things about being an endurance athlete is the clean slate you get each year to set new performance expectations for yourself.
At TrainingPeaks, we believe that each year during this time, we should all seize the opportunity to dream up new goals so that our upcoming season planning can begin as soon as possible. The key is not only to set a particular performance goal, but also to piece together a strong framework of training, analyzing and accountability. This holds true whether you’re training yourself, following a training plan, or working with an expert coach.
Once you’ve let your dream spark your motivation, we’re here to help make sure your best self arrives on that starting line. By helping you plan and complete structured training and giving you regular feedback toward your progress, it’s easier than ever to stay on track.
With Workout Builder and our Garmin and Wahoo structured workout integrations, it’s easier than ever to individualize your training and make sure you are hitting the right pace and power targets at the right moment. Our new Peak Performances feature allows you to quickly see improvement and progress toward your goals through awarded medals on new peak power, heart rate, or pace numbers on all bike and run workouts.
So, take a moment to dream, and by all means, dream big. Your goal is on the horizon, and we can’t wait to help you get there.
