Week 24

The injury that crept up on me last week and my plan to push through it was not careful enough. I’d planned to do 2 daily 200 swing sessions of 16kg but ultimately these became sessions of one arm 12kg swings. It bothers me that I’m close to the halfway point and my body is not playing along.

The feeling of being so close to a milestone and not sprinting powerfully towards it frustrates me but when I look back on my life I can see many many times where I’ve been close to the end of a race, a run, a project and lost interest. Sometimes I think I’m less interested in the finish line and more interested in being in the process, in the moment. I just don’t want these things to end. Like a small child at the playground I just want one more go on the slide, and one more go on the roundabout, and one more, and one more.

Closing things out and being a “finisher” is something I need to work on and this challenge is helping. Tomorrow I’ll be back to 16kg for a few days as a test if nothing else.
