Training is a process. It is a process of blending all components of training into a useable whole to allow adaption in pursuit of competition goals. Every bit of training big and small counts. The art is assembling those bits so that they fit together seamlessly. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that all components of training must trained during all phases of the training year. That being said it should be obvious that each component cannot receive equal emphasis. There must be proportionality to ensure continual adaptation. Pay attention to all the bits and make sure they all count.
