You win or you learn
That you win or you learn is a common saying in fighting. The saying comes from that the L that you get on your record in fighting stands for Learning, not Losing. It can be very true.
Unfortunately, it can also be a big fat lie.
It's very common that fighter's start blaming everything around them. The weight cut.
The training camp.
Sometimes, those can be real reasons but even when they are, they're not enough.
Yesterday, I lost at running. Yes, I made my 30 mile mark but I didn't make the 32 miles and I didn't make it running, since I had to walk the last 6 miles. I'm planning on running the Grand Canyon and the 50 miles, not walking it.
So what did I learn yesterday? I learnt that I need to stretch more. I learnt that I need to get more massages (thank you for today Aida).
I learnt that I have to continue focusing on posture and strengthening the support running muscles.
But 2 weeks leave very little time. There's only so much that can be done.
If anyone has any advice or tips, they would be very appreciated!
