It’s important to recognise our progress in training and there are many ways to do this, the following are a few I recommend.
- Physical, have you increased your weight, your reps or speed where possible, these are all great progressions, take note 🙂
- Cognitive, has your focus and concentration improved, these are very possible outcomes as well as improved memory. Take note and track your improvements when you notice these too.
- Emotional, do you feel better in yourself, happier and more engaged socially. Take note of these as it’s a great outcome that can sometimes get overlooked.
Important also for us to recognise, is if any of these factors begin to reverse, this is something that can happen with overtaining so is helpful to be aware ofas early as possible.
When keeping our own progress notes we can keep on top of our training and ensure we stay at our best, something well worth doing.
Enjoy the process and progress 🙏💫
