Who's the Boss?

Who is the boss?

All things require balance.

In sport balance equals success. Andy Newell, 4th place Oberstdorf, WC.

 

Inches are won and lost by choices made, actions taken.

 

9000 km a year in training. Here, Angerer adds up a few KM's with some one-pole drills.

Morgan Smyth, Northern Michigan University / US Ski Team, not about to give away all the hard work.

 

When it comes to school and balance there are several things to consider. The primary one is seldom study and training - for which there is enough time in the day. Alcohol and partying is the biggest challenge to attending college and succeeding in sport. Here is some very good information that I suggest you read:

And for those looking for more time in their day, who can forget TV watching:

The total average time per household in 2005-06 was eight hours and 14 minutes per day.
-- Reuters (September 22, 2006)

That's a lot of KM time and TV is not actually good rest time.

It is very important to have fun with your friends. That is a big part of being a balanced athlete.

 

You are the boss.

Your actions are your choice and your responsibility.

Your actions are your choice and your responsibility.

Your actions are your choice and your responsibility.

Your actions are your choice and your responsibility.

 

ALL IN.
