Most of the time — let’s say 66% — I’m uncertain of what I’m doing. On a good day, I’m spot on — let’s say 34%.
Most of the time I’m afraid of making a mistake or doing something stupid. Did I run too far or not far enough? Do I need to ride more hills for that blessed Ironman Wisconsin bike course? Am I eating too much sugar, not enough protein, and sleeping enough? Will I end up killing myself if I do a brick when I’m running on fumes? What’s the BEST fuel for me to eat right now?
Living in fear and uncertainty is an exhausting experience. Let’s be honest… There is NOT one right way to do anything. But instead of picking a side or leading the way, we get stuck over-analyzing who’s done what and why. I’ve done it this way for the past 43 years, and I’ve got it down pat…. I think.
Instead, how about we try this? Just for today, we decide to be confident in what we know. Today we won’t give a fuck about what other people think, say or do. Today we listen to our gut, trust ourselves and do what we know is right (but not necessarily easy). Period. End of story.
