“Bad workouts and races — we all have them and we always will. Accept that the body has an ebb and flow that we don’t quite understand. Some days you just feel ‘off.’ As hard as it is to accept a bad workout or race when there are valid reasons, it’s doubly challenging when there appears to be no reason at all. I used to worry about this, but now I just shrug it off as the quirkiness of the body and mind. Don’t invest in it or over think it. Move on.” – Greg McMillan
This is one of my all time favorite running quotes. Why? Because we can ALL relate to having a bad day. Sometimes that bad day hits on race day, and other days, it happens on a training run. But we all have them. Accept that they happen and move on.
Easier said than done?
