In the final week before my next race I feel strong and confident, this is an A race for me which means it’s the race I have been training for this entire time. It didn’t start that way though. I was actually coaching a friend and felt that since I was doing the distance I should do the race. “Do the race” that’s funny to me, and it’s because I never just DO anything. I give it my all. I commit and I train, I finely balance all that life throws my way, put my head down and go foward full force.
Somedays are great, others not so great but it’s putting all those pieces together in the final days that I see the results. Will I question and second guess myself? Absolutely, every single day. Even as I race I have to struggle with that, I think we all do on different levels. Just today as I was swimming the words I told myself over and over.. You are a FIGHTER, You are STRONG especially when that self doubt starts to creep in.
For as long as I can remember I have struggled with self doubt. For as long as I can remember I have stared that self doubt in the face and said “I’m going for it anyways.” The Time is Now .. I don’t want to look back and wish I could have done more. What do you want to do.. Go out there and Just do it!!!
