Stay focused, this is the time that challenges you, but stay on task.

Start to think of how you want your season to end, with PRs? with league title? Write your goals on a postcard, and put them on your mirror, so you see it each and every day. Write it on your calendar on your mobile and have it repeat each day at same time. Read it. Live it.
