I love the Olympics.
I may love them a touch too much, as for the first time in about 5 years, I overslept for the Henley crew today!
I won’t tell you exactly how quickly I got from bed to Henley camp, but let’s just say it was medal winning :-/
Anyway, over the last 10 days or so I have become an armchair expert in diving, hockey, gymnastics (landings specifically!) and the canoe sprint thingy!
I love the ability to get athletes to the perfect peak of performance at exactly the right time. To streamline their preparation for one or two perfect performances.
And isn’t that just it?
These athletes are in the best form of their lives so they can perform for one or two perfect moments. All of them when asked ‘what now?’ have said ‘a holiday’, ‘some time for me to be me and see my family’.
So if these people who are in the best form ever recognise that they can’t be top of their game all the time, why can’t it apply to us?
Why do we have to be forever getting lighter?
Why do we think we should be perfect every day?
Why do we criticise ourselves for not being good enough?
I found a great saying that a flower doesn’t bloom all year around, so why should we?
I like that a lot. It sums up the cyclic nature of life, the seasons of change and the ebb and flow of energy, motivation and inspiration.
At FastTrack Fit Camp I’ve seen September become one of those months. A month for change and all things new.
Next week I’ll be sharing with you how we can help you if you are interested in getting your Autumn health and fitness plan into action.
If you want to know before then please just drop me a line and we can have a chat.
Finally, I want to share with you too the photo we took last week at our Family Charity Sunday Workout.
An aerial shot to (attempt to) represent the breast cancer ribbon to support the charity Breast Cancer Now, we raised £300 and had a great morning. Thanks to all who came along.
Have a great weekend and if you want me, I’ll be watching the last few days of the Olympics!
