Concept 6 - Create a Training Plan

"Strengthening Your Marriage and Station in Life"


 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air.

- 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Training is important for tandem riders to have the strength to climb large hills, fight the headwinds and ride longer distances. But it’s important to do it in a balanced methodical way to achieve the best results.

​Jumping into it full throttle can cause injury, yet moving too slowly will not allow growth to occur and you may miss out on opportunities. Therefore we must make a sensible plan to train our weaknesses and leverage our strengths to get to a higher level.

​In marriage, the ones who make this same kind of training investment can achieve the same results. They can look back and see where their training has made them better as a couple because the results show the benefits of having done the work.

​It sounds so easy to make a plan and get through it successfully, but we also know that in real life, it’s harder than it looks. It is very easy to fall into a reactive lifestyle from a proactive one. But if we sit back and let life happen to us and do nothing about it, that’s what we will get out of it…nothing.

​Consider the confidence, security, and peace you could be experiencing if you made a plan, achieved the goal, and now are in a better place. Your life can start to feel as if you are more in control and the idea of change and growth in your marriage is feeling more real.

​After a few success stories like this, you can now see that you can live well, rather than just getting by.

​Focus on training your marriage to reach higher and farther as a couple!
