Its day 3 since my crash…
I still walk with severe pain in my growing (inner thigh pain), and I feel like crap… like I am sick or something.
I hope to swim this evening – Mario also wants me to try and ride on my turbo nice and easy for 30-60 minutes, but right now I really don’t feel like doing anything other than laying down on my couch.
Two days ago, over lunch with Mario and Sophie, for the 10th time I had to listen to Mario talk about how stupid my fall was, and how I fell ONLY because of a lack of focus.
I got annoyed because I didn’t like to hear for the 10th time how I had made a mistake…
I am the one who is bruised and sore … I fully understand my mistake.
I understand my crash didn’t “just happen,” my lack of focus “caused, or allowed it to happen.”
This morning over coffee, Sophie brought up that lunch.. and pointed out (again) how I had become “over – confident” and too focused on the media and being filmed; too focused on things which have nothing to do with my ultimate goal: “finishing” my challenge.
She pointed out how “Mario doesn’t care about being on the Discovery Channel. He only cares about you finishing.”
Imagine….if I f’cked up the past 6+ months of dedication and focus because for one training session, I wasn’t focused.
It’s interesting to think about how many times in life, a lack of consistent focus, even for just one day can cause us to crash or fall from our climb.
