I was all set to write about the low mileage week I’m having. My plan was to confess that I haven’t stuck to my training schedule because of mental and physical fatigue; I was going to ponder why I’ve hit a mental wall twice this week when I should be working on speed; and I wanted to ask you why I can go from a solid week of training highs to a solid week of mental lows so very quickly.
But then I read this:
“Bad workouts and races — we all have them and we always will. Accept that the body has an ebb and flow that we don’t quite understand. Some days you just feel ‘off.’ As hard as it is to accept a bad workout or race when there are valid reasons, it’s doubly challenging when there appears to be no reason at all. I used to worry about this, but now I just shrug it off as the quirkiness of the body and mind. Don’t invest in it or over think it. Move on.” – Greg McMillan
And that’s all I have to say about that.
