It’s early in the week but it’s been a stressful one. Work has been challenging, a couple of hiccups in projects and a new technical challenge that needed to be remedied yesterday. Some of the kids are sick and they all have a busy after school schedule. My wife is having an insanely busy week with many of her own challenges that she will need to work on late as well. So… one of those weeks.

What does any of this have to do with training? Surprisingly, quite a bit. I have found that my stress levels throughout the day and in general are quite a bit lower. Stressful situations are met as challenges that can be overcome. I have the energy and endurance to persevere. I have the mental clarity to emotionally stay on task. Most importantly I know I can overcome any obstacle. I can also “work it out” at my next session.
