One exercise in particular was extremely difficult for me Week 1: the one leg sit and stands. For this past week's workouts, I found myself doing the easier version (opposite heel on the ground) without even testing if I could do the exercise as prescribed normally. I assumed that I wasn't capable of doing it and when I gave myself the chance, I proved myself wrong. Not only could I do more than a few, but I was able to do nearly all of them without the aid of my other leg! This made me think that I may be creating walls and roadblocks for myself when I am fearful of not being capable of doing something.
With the race less than 14 weeks away, I am beyond excited and nervous, but I cannot wait until that weekend where I get to see what I'm capable of. That's what ultras are for, right? For me, that's a good portion of what they are about.
Anyone do anything fun this weekend? Any fun race training or ways you pushed yourself. I'd love to hear!
