Focus is the ability to put aside distractions and put attention and effort into a specific objective. Focus is often considered a positive attribute. Many times today, we hear the term “in the moment”. I consider someone who is focused to be in the moment.
Focus in terms of cycling means several things. In the narrowest sense, it means being able to hit the objectives of the specific workout for the day. Or, if we are in a race, it means keeping the objectives of the race in the forefront of our consciousness and doing what we can to achieve them. A good periodized training plan has objectives for the week/month and includes goals for the year. Focus allows us to keep those longer term goals in mind.
So as you go about your training, stayed focused. Attain the objectives for each workout and continue to make progression on your goals/objectives for the year.
