Current Mantra: Today is the Day — Danielle Sidell
Jottings: I slept poorly for a second day. No training yesterday because I was stiff, slept poorly and had a slight sore throat. I felt like I did everything right to set myself up for good sleep, by relaxing in the tub before bed. Wrong.
Since the Kortelopet is this Saturday, I training schedule was going to be wonky. Originally I was going to train Monday & Tuesday and take the rest of the week off. Now I need do decide if Tues., Wed. Then off. I guess I’ll be playing it by ear.
I watched Generation Iron last night. What can I say? I’ve been lifting since on and off since high school. Sometimes I stray, but I always seem to make my way back to a gym.
Today’s professional bodybuilders are freaks. That said, while I don’t like the physiques, I admire the single-mindedness that it takes to achieve them. A take-away that applies to me: In order to achieve at a high level requires, single-mindedness, motivation and drive but it also takes a little selfishness, self-doubt and fear.
