I'm torn.

On one hand my reading of Again Faster (specifically this article) has filled me with the fire. I want to be better, faster, stronger, leaner and a damn sight meaner. I especially feel impassioned about the section timed "Months after the race". I want to announce some stupid things then be forced to follow through.

Then I read this Gym Jones piece and I wonder if doing so will hold me back.

Fuck it. I'm angry. No that's not right, it's too general. I'm angry at myself. I coasted mentally through last year. Too many excuses. Too much care about race results and too little about personal improvement.

There will be no "oh I can only do 2 turns on this ride" do 10, then... do some more.

I don't know if it's a case of tuning the brain, rewiring it or just turning it off. What I do know (slash think strongly about) is that it's getting in the way of stronger, faster, leaner, meaner.

Why? Fuck you, that's why!

Anger is a gift.
