This Summer, I set myself a bit of a vague goal: Approach training with a ‘healthier balance’. I set this goal to avoid over-consuming myself in training and to make sure I don’t compromise too much from other important aspects of life.
But what exactly is a ‘healthier balance’? Was I not healthy before?
For 10 years, I have consumed myself in specific functional goals in preparation for “Race Day”. It is something I’m really proud of, but sometimes I struggle to find enough meaning behind it all… a reason to dedicate so much time to it.
So this is what I was trying to accomplish by training with a ‘healthier balance’… less compromise to train and more time with friends and family.
It almost backfired! … I started questioning things way more than before.
