Our favorite post from the past week.
I threw a season best in training yesterday so I was inspired to write! Not because it was a far result, it most certainly wasn’t. It was almost a SB regardless of training or competition, though. The distance isn’t what makes me happy. In fact, the distance is paltry compared to what my training level “used to be”. But that’s just it. Our sport is brutally a “what have you done for me, lately?” culture. And as such, I feel I should hold myself to that standard. What I have done is all well and good, but since I haven’t retired yet, what I am doing now is really all that matters. So as I claw my way back, I will gladly take every single little victory in my path. Taking smaller steps will still get you to the mountain top.
