For some of us it happens more often than we'd like. How many times have you found yourself in this situation ..you're making massive gains in your speed and strength. It's been a solid few weeks/months/cycles/whatever and you haven't deviated from the course or rationalized quitting. Then...*poof* you're gone.
Sometimes, life walks in while you're in the middle of giving it to your training. I mean, you're really going at it, humming along, and firing on all cylinders. Them...BAM! In walks life. You make eye contact as you're balls deep in your training. Then things just get all kinds of weird.
It's going to happen. Like death, taxes, and [insert something witty here]...you can't avoid it.
I've just gone through one of these encounters. As I'm sure you have noticed, its been a few months since I've posted on here...and sadly, also a few months since I've trained in any organized fashion.
I'm flabbier, weaker, and slower than I was in August. It sucks. But it's the reality and it's something I have control over. I'm not about to run away from it.
