Sometimes, the focus on the positive can be a bad thing. I have been publicly focusing on all the positives on my training, and the weekly updates where I'm still losing weight, and logging almost all my running miles make that easy to do. (Although I did I have a hiccup with the positive with my knee injury and my bronchitis). Let's be honest though, when it comes to the mountain training, I'm terrified that I am WAY, WAY, WAY behind.
|Because this is the LEAST of my mountain worries.|
My knee injury required me to take a break from squats and lunges during my strength training. I was also supposed to limit the number of stairs I did. ALL OF THESE THINGS are the things I'm supposed to be doing MORE of for the mountain training. I did add some squats and side lunges back in at the end of last week though.
|Climbing this will require more than just a FEW squats though.|
|Rather all the runs outside in this should be the determining factor...|
|Don't mess with mommy when she's worried!|
Ok. I feel better now that I was honest about my mountain climbing fitness fears. My lungs need to heal NOW.
Have you ever psyched yourself out about your training?
Do you ever feel like you aren't training enough??? How do you balance the fears and the training?
