And how to overcome setbacks…..
I’ve recently injured myself through running. It’s the first time I’ve had a sports injury like this and after finding the initial week frustrating, 3 weeks on it’s still pretty tough.
Have you ever noticed that when you can’t do something for a while, you discover the real reason why you wanted to do it in the first place? Just a few days of not running and I find my “why”. I don’t care about races and times; I run to find space and peace. And now I’m missing that.
Just as I was feeling really crummy a friend who I really admire posted on Instagram about overcoming unexpected setbacks. Thank you Kim Ingleby!
What’s great about this list is you can use it for any setback - ones at work or in daily life as well.
This is what I have learned,....grab yourself some paper and a pen….
Write down what happened.
Why did it happen? Overtrain, not enough rest? Not enough good fresh food?
What can you learn and adapt to do differently?
What is your best recovery plan? Realign the next 3 months and give yourself mini challenges to do each week to keep your focus (and most importantly for me to keep my brain happy).
Massive thanks to Kim and hopefully I will be back up and running before the end of the year.
