Thoughts: I was reminded by a friend lately that we should not be focused on how strong or lean we used to be – handicap our current efforts. Instead we’d be better served both mentally and physically to focus on our current efforts – not on hold on to our former selves.
Sometimes comparisons are good, but don’t make the mistake of trying to hang on to long-past performances or metrics – you’ll be much happier being able to celebrate current success. Similarly, you’ll be able to objectively evaluate what you have to improve to start getting some wins with your training again.
