Your Every day Breakthrough

I promised an achilles tendon rehab update at the end of the month, and it is officially the beginning of November tomorrow…*Pinch, punch, first of the month!*

To be honest, if I could draw you a graph of my progress since my last update here, it would seem as though my incredible progress has flat-lined.

But that isn’t the case.

I guess I’ll simply use this post to quickly reiterate what my Pastor (Glyn Barrett of Audacious Church, Manchester) recently preached on in church – the power of the ‘every day’ – because it is incredibly significant to me and you right now.

What you do each day with consistency has an incredible impact on your future – whether that be positive or negative.

At least three times a week, I hit the gym and follow the achilles tendon rehab program I’ve been sharing with you here and via my YouTube channel here.

Once per day, five or six days per week, I do 3 sets of 12 single leg calf raises, simply because my achilles needs that load to get stronger.

So, although I may still be following the same rehab program I posted in my last post, and the current progress is incremental, I have faith that my every day will lead to a ‘one day’ breakthrough moment.

It happened in 2012 where my 6 am weight-training schedule and late night sprint sessions, and early Saturday morning jumps’ sessions culminated in one magnificent, world-class, top-ten in the world long jump performance.

My ‘breakthrough’ performance of 6.80m in 2012!

It happened in 2016 only a few weeks ago where my every day (sometimes dull and monotonous) rehab program, 3-day heavy loading schedule and other integral pieces of my rehab and fitness program were consistently done. After the mundane every day, I experienced my breakthrough ‘one day’ and I ran again for the first time in over 5 months; I ran freely.

And you know what my next target is, right? *Watch this space*

What are you doing every day?

Are your daily practices going to contribute to your future success?
