Repost from @alwynuys using @RepostRegramApp - Getting back into things was hard 😅, let's not lie, we all struggle if we've taken some time off and feeling like a baby whale at times is probably normal I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️🐳 but what I learned in this time of not training (8weeks to be exact) is that my mind has gone soft, like it's gone into sleep mode because it wasn't being tested. The hardest part was waking it up again and getting use to discomfort, pushing the mind where it doesn't really want to go. Not everything in life is physical 🧠 although I had major physical down time, I neglected the mental impact it would have.
Each day, push your mind that 1% further than the day before.
