Consistency is King (or Queen)
As I said in my previous post, my training of late has been nothingness interspersed with the occasional rockstar moment. While it is fantastic to have these moments of greatness, I have decided that this week I'm going for consistency instead. I have put my head down and, dare I say it, JFDI. As much as I have come to dislike that acronym, I have found that I need to use it every now and then.
Last night I really didn't want to train. I was coming up with every excuse under the sun. I'd had a big day at work and was exhausted from doing a job that involved being in an unventilated area surrounded by 800degC burners. I felt grotty and tired but went to the gym anyway. I'm glad I did my workout, I felt so much better for it. It gave me a chance to shake off my crankiness of the day. It wasn't my best workout I've ever done but I did it and that made me happy.
