|This is how I feel lifting, sometimes. It'll get easier, though!|
One thing that has been plaguing me is the fact that compared to last year, my mileage and workouts have been lacking. It has been a difficult time for me because I know I shouldn't compare and each year is different, but I just feel constantly behind in my training without the ability to catch up. I'm insanely competitive and I worry that if I don't do well in my upcoming races, I'm going to be be really upset. This week's goal, though, is to try to distance myself from that mindset and focus on doing the best I can do now.
Here's to hoping the next ~6 and ~13 weeks of training go well, without the self-made pressure that I've created.
