Athletes work in seasons.

Runners train in cycles.

Last season prepared athletes for this season.

Last cycle prepared runners for this cycle.

The work and training compounds.

With each season and cycle athletes and runners learn and become better, stronger, and more experienced.

Although they’re starting over, they’re starting from a more advanced place.

They’re building on the work that has been done.

The work you did yesterday prepared you for today.

The work you’re doing today is preparing you for tomorrow.
