Don't worry child, Swedish House Mafia
And similarly to interval training I look forward to the holidays but for an athlete this isn't all that easy. To be so un-regimented with food and frolic is to feel as though you are squandering all the hard work you've put into everything leading into them. And the holidays are a pretty long block of time too, to be so unstructured and such, you know? I know for me that I lose a lot of fitness and focus during them and feel off kilter without the structure of knowing exactly what I'll be doing each day.
But, there's a time for everything I guess. Relaxing and letting things slide for a little bit is okay, especially this time of year. Maybe it's even good for you too, to an extent. Like the video above 'don't worry child' ...there's a plan right around the corner. So you just kinda have to get into a suck it up and buckle down mindset (like intervals) and know that you'll come out on the other side mentally ready...for the new year.
I have one more training session to get through on New Years Eve but I can see the light, after that its all about into 2013.
Peace and roll strong.
