I don’t mean to be disrespectful by taking some lines from the great Supremes song and reinterpreting them, but that song speaks volumes about training the athlete. Here are some lyrics of the song as the Supremes sang them. You remember momma said:

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

Now here is the coaching version sung to the same tune. You remember the old coach said:

You can't hurry training
No, you just have to wait

Adaptation takes time
He said to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

You can't hurry training
No, you just have to wait
He said success don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

Developing an athlete takes time, don't be in a hurry. Time is on your side, make time your friend by using it efficiently. Next time you are tempted to hurry things up or look for a quick fix remember what the Supremes said.
