No Reservations

Just You

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Seems like everyone is so busy these days.  I know our family can barely remember which direction we're supposed to drive in moment by moment.  But we're not pretending we're the only ones.  And, um, neither should you.  We have athletes that work shift work, athletes with a lot of kids, athletes with businesses to run, athletes involved in other "extracurricular" activities outside of work and home, and athletes that travel a lot.  You know what?  They still get here.  Admit it: you're not the only one with a full plate.  A mix of planning, goals, and priorities are what help these athletes get their workouts in.  They know that if they don't make it happen, it won't.  They know that when they are healthier, they are happier, and their families also benefit.  They know that "wearing out" is better than "rusting out".  They  know that they second law of thermodynamics as it applies to their bodies means that our bodies will drift towards "disorder" unless they nudge it in the right direction.  Besides, when you get in here, it's your time.  Anything else going on in life can be put on hold.  Even though there is an awesome, supportive community here, once the clock starts, it's just you, in your own world, pushing your body, to reach your personal goals.  All you're paying attention to is your heartbeat, your breathing, your technique, your muscle fatigue, and, well your coach.  Come be selfish, for just about an hour or so.
