I am here in Moscow and compete tomorrow. I am in the first flight at 5:05 which is 9:05 AM eastern time. I believe live stats should be online on Iaaf.org or even a web stream of it.

If you are in school, it has to be about your studies because without passing grades you will not be able to compete or be eligible. Then besides that, it is about what you are doing to better yourself for your sport. Whether it is how you prepare each day for practice- which is not just showing up right before practice and going, or your effort every day at practice- not just going through the motions but giving your full effort for that day. Then it is also how you perceive practice, positive or negative, and then what you learn each day to progress yourself as an athlete. As a post collegiate athlete, what are you doing to optimize each day of practice? Sometimes that can be tough when you are not keeping your focus on your goal.
The thing I encourage is if you want to achieve something, you have to focus your life around this. I never have a problem with any athlete I work with if there is effort- that means there is focus. But as an athlete, if you do not want to bring focus and effort every day- why do you even do it? Start every day with a goal and focus to become great, for whatever level of athlete that is. Then you can end every day knowing you have done something great!
