In this video interview with Steve House, Kilian Jornet talks about goals and why they are important for training. Not only for staying motivated each day, but also for knowing what you actually have to do to achieve the goal: each year, each month, each week, each day. Training is the process that makes you into a different person. A fitter athlete.
Kilian also points out common mistakes with goals, including not being realistic about having the time to do the work needed to achieve your objective.
