I won’t be competing this year after all. Sometimes what we want isn’t what we need & a reprioritization of goals is best. I’m disappointed the plan has taken this direction yet I’m choosing to view it as it’s the scenic route. I still believe I will reach the next level of competing just not this year.
To cut to the chase I need to have a surgery that will physically put me out of commission 4-6 weeks. I feel I should stress I am overall incredibly healthy. Yet some things are simply out of our control however I do have control over my reaction. I will take advantage of the down time to strengthen other areas that are equally important to me. Till that downtime comes though I’ll be cranking out weights & enjoying my training.
So no, I’m NOT quitting & the folks that have made that comment to me can buzz off. I know who I am & what I need to do. I’m just getting started.
