Gettin’ Through It

01 Jul shonakamori No Comments »

Hard training days aren’t all that bad when your body’s feelin’ fresh and you’re ready to go.  Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.  As an athlete, you’re always dealing with sore here, or sore there, and it’s a constant battle between yourself.

However, getting through these workouts when you’re not “feelin’ it” is more meaningful than those workouts you go through when you feel good.  After all, more often than not, you enter a competition not feeling 100%.  What better way to simulate this than push through these workouts?

Anyway, I woke up this morning completely beaten up from the training the day before. It was one of those days when I had to “roll out” of bed.  What made it worse was the instant I woke up, the first thing that went through my mind was that I’d have to go through another heavy training plan again.  Went to the gym, and whatdayaknow, my body felt super heavy!  Thing is, rather than loathing about it, I always like to takes these days as a fun challenge.  An opportunity to see how much I could do while not feeling all that great.  Crazy thing is, one little switch on how you look at things can change a whole lot.  The mind is a powerful thing.  Despite some minor mistakes, I was able to get through the hard training!

Tomorrow is finally a lighter day.  I’ll be getting my knee checked out again by the trainer.  Believe it or not, it hasn’t even been a year since I had the surgery to repair this knee.  There are some days that are more sore than others but I’m happy with the way things have been progressing!
