Rest Day

REALITY CHECK

I want to elaborate on the difference between frustration due to having
a bad day vs. frustration due to being a bad athlete. Anyone who has
participated in a sport at a high level can vouch that it is impossible
to make a personal record every training session of your life. When you
are training at high intensity 5-6 times a week, you are going to have
great days, bad days, and majority of the time….good days. This is not
speculation, it is fact, and holds true the more advanced of an athlete
you are. Bad days happen…let it go, and use that frustration to come
back tomorrow and have a great session. A bad athletes' frustration
stems from ego, ignorance and complacency. They expect the results
without putting in the blood, sweat and tears. If you want to be one of
the best, you must train like the best. If you are frustrated with your
level of performance, but only make it to the gym once a week, you need a
reality check. The level of success you reach is directly correlated to
degree of sacrifice you are willing to make.
