Resistance & Recovery

In the last couple weeks, I havenโ€™t been recovering as well as usual. Likely due to the stress of the holidays coupled with increasing volume and suboptimal sleep. – Resistance to adaptation has happened a couple times in my training and each time it generates some fear and frustration.

I train 6 days a week.

Cinderella Saved Herself

As a little girl, I loved the story of Cinderella. Kindness prevailing despite miserable circumstances, miracles bestowed by fairy godmothers, and love conquering all. These themes still appeal to me. I used to think the story of someone loving us enough to save us from our suffering was romantic. I didnโ€™t realize that by dreamily … More Cinderella Saved Herself

Donโ€™t Waste This Opportunity
