Is it Friday yet?
Not sure why, but this week has been tough. My energy is low and my workouts have been tough. I am getting through though. The toughest part is breaking through the lack of ambition to get going. Once I do, I've been able to knock off some seriously good work. I think we all have days where we 'just don't feel like it'. But if 'it' is important, we push through and get er done. This relates to work, life, training, the whole works. I think 'practicing' doing something, even when I don't feel like it, builds strength. Mental fortitude that is passed on to other life areas. Part of why I love being involved in sport- it keeps me from coasting.
This month my coach has me on a strength focus. This means lots of hard work :-) I have read ahead to some of my workouts and I think I might need to stop doing that. Knowing what I had to do today made it tough to get started! I knew I was in for some hurtin. But I got my swim in at 7am and my killer hill workout this afternoon. Now I have one more class to teach before I can collapse into my bed. Every muscle in my body is tired and sore. It is a good tired and sore...at least until I have to tackle tomorrow's sessions...
Happy training :-)
