*Turning idols into rivals*

After what I can only describe as a “crash and burn” run this afternoon, this lifted my spirits. Mr. Wasn’t Just the Wine Talking put this image up as my screen saver. A reminder of why my body is feeling a heavy fatigue tonight. Why my legs feel dead whenever I stand. Why my stomach is grumpy. And why I push myself over and over.

Because this is happening in 67 days.

And I’ve got this stuck in my head: work so hard your idols become your rivals.

Boom!

I think with a little extra downtime this evening, paired with some extra sleep tonight, I’ll be good-to-go tomorrow and ready to tackle another day of training!
