This weekend I’d just chosen the “Quote Of The Week” and it now seems as poignant as ever…
“YOU AREN’T DEFINED BY WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU… YOU ARE DEFINED BY HOW YOU REACT TO WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU“
We know this whole epidemic is a major thing. Everyone is going through their own individual experience of it and we’re here to help you through your own journey.
For us, the uncontrollables, are the constraints that stop us from opening for people for 4 weeks from Thursday. But there is plenty we can do before during and after then to make sure this event doesnt define us and our strong and positive actions do… We want you all to be the best versions of yourselves and here’s an idea about how we can start off strong:
Sports Science has a couple of labels for when we train TOO MUCH! And not both are necessarily bad.
The first is OVERTRAINING. Defined by a long period of reduced or hindered performance due to chronic training load – overtraining is to be avoided!
The second is OVERREACHING. Simply defined by a more short term bout of training beyond your ability to recover, but not so much so that you don’t recover fairly quickly – and stronger than before! It is overreaching we can utilise over the next few days.
Knowing that from Thursday we might have hindered training capability, we may as well ‘overreach’ up to that point.
NO NEED TO REST, smash it hard Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday…
Although you may feel like youve been hit by a bus on Thursday, you will have plenty of days to recover and when you do you will be better for it.
Of course, that advice won’t be suitable for everyone and you need to think about your individual situation, but it could be a very useful strategy for some.
