Its been a hard few weeks, down here, battling the heat and humidity. At times, I think it’s getting the better of me.
Wearing me down..bit by bit. Draining me…Sucking out every bit of want and desire that I have to succeed.
I know we all feel it, that mental struggle that weighs on us from time to time.
Those moments when we ask ourselves, “what the hell am I doing and why the hell am I doing it?”
Sometimes a little perspective is all that’s needed…
To help find the answer that lies within…
“Mental toughness is going out to train when your inner self screams not to: it is frigid outside, it is 100 degrees, you are tired, your muscles ache, and it’s too early in the morning or too late at night. You work through these urges to skip the workout and go out there and just smash it. Then you know when race day comes along, you have pushed the limit so when the race heats up you can squeeze out that extra little bit because you have done it before.” -Joanna Zeiger Ph.D, Professional Triathlete, Scientist, and 2008 70.3 World Champion
Train Happy, My Friends!
