Have you ever thought that you need to change your training and always put it off?

You either feel you haven’t got the time or you’re happy to keep going as you are?

I know the feeling, to keep going in the usual routine can feel comfortable and you know what is coming.

However sometimes something happens that forces you to have to make a change.
