Example

I am training to improve my running times in cross country. Cross country is my primary sport and I also run track. During the off-season I am now focusing on using the rowing machine to increase my cardio fitness and I am also using the weight room for strength training. My future goals are to be a state champion in High School and then to participate in a triathlon when I am in college. I then want to maintain a healthy life-style and run recreationally as an adult.
