Gaining Momentum

One of our guys just came back from being away for a few weeks to move out to the ‘burbs, and mentioned how he felt like he needed to get back into the swing of things after what felt like such a long absence. It happens to all of us at some point or another, unless you have somehow managed to shun your entire family and live in a bunker or something. Things happen, life sometimes creates opportunities, other times obstacles, that need to be addressed. You just might lose momentum in the path to training because other, more pressing matters need attending.

While of course it is preferable to train as much as you can, as I am sure I have mentioned before it is also essential to address the personal and professional, immediate bumps in the road. Things that are long term (longer than a month or two)- well, that’s completely up to you. I personally feel if there is no foreseeable resolution within a month or two, then I would say still train, do what you can and if you still have to take a little time off, so be it. Don’t feel bad about it; we all lose momentum or get knocked down once in a while- the real test is if we can back up again.
