The amazing Eleanor Roosevelt is quoted as saying many very cool things. I get the feeling she was a top chick and I would have liked her very much. One of my favourite quotes of hers is this one:
So particularly true in my experience.
But the Eleanor quote that it rattling around in my head today is this one:
My training has been at a bit of a standstill for a while. Between not competing, being sick, getting better, going overseas, being sick – I just haven’t trained with any sort of intensity in a while. And it shows. I miss having defined legs and great glutes. I miss feeling strong.
So today I go back into training properly. No wimping out, no half-assedness. Just setting goals and lifting things. The way it should be.
This of course scares the hell out of me. I’ve no doubt lost a lot of strength. It’s not going to be pretty. I hate not doing things well from the very beginning. I’m setting myself goals for things which I’m pretty sure I’m no good at. Which brings me to another Eleanor moment:
Dang, she sure was a smart lady.
Have a great day Lovelies,
