I just had my first and hopefully last horrible practice for the year. The culprit… distraction!!! Now, in fairness, I’ve been basking in the glory of some great training sessions, so when a day like today occurs it sticks out like a sore thumb!
I believe the same can be said about life in general. If you find yourself not getting the results that you want (no matter what it is), it pays dividends to stop, take note and confront the brutal facts. We aren’t passengers in this thing called life. We are the drivers.
The difference with sports compared to life, are that the goals and objectives are clearly defined, within a constructed time frame. Therefore it is easier to identify problems… But, often people can linger in this horrible state when it comes to life…. Eeeek!!!!!
As for me, I’ve already begun identifying the errors in today's practice session and what I must do to ensure a day like this doesn’t happen again… Even if that means I never watch another Bachelor show between now and the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Days like today remind me, I just might be a mere mortal… hmmm…. but, I doubt it…
Pressing onto a better day in training & hitting the books,
