Now that we move into the competition season, a big part of my training is 're-learning how to compete'. The anticipation, nerves, excitement and anxiety drives us into a highly sympathetic state that we rarely get to when training. Excluding the elite who compete for a living, these feelings are perfectly normal and to be expected
Watch any TV interview of a successful athlete after they take 1st place, and the interviewer asks "How did you feel before the race, were you nervous?", to which they respond "No, I was excited". Seasoned competitors do this naturally, but it serves as an important reminder that your thoughts can influence as to whether these feelings positively or negatively affect your performance. Reframing that negative energy, 'this is not a good workout for me', to 'I'm excited for this challenge and to see how much I've improved" can have a huge impact on game day performance
Hitting my first online qualifier for the @asiachampionships today was a great chance for me to re-accustom myself with all of those feelings, and ensure that they were feelings of excitement vs feelings of nervousness. On top of that, I asked my judge @carolynhkg to uphold standards as if it was Regionals; I put thought into my pacing strategy, how I set up my station, where I placed my chalk, where I set up my camera, and how and when I would review and critque my performance should I need to re-do
Remember that we operate based on instinct when we go to battle. To ensure that your instinct is also your best possible performance, the training needs to start NOW
Thanks @lachyrowston @shingomoromasa @dalecki for the push 😘
I used to think people were crazy when they said that pain is an emotional barrier. Most people, like I did, assume that their pain comes from bad posture, bad habits, lack of exercise or just out of nowhere. Sometimes this is true, but it is just as likely that pain comes from suppressed emotions, work stress, anxiety, sadness, diet, loneliness etc. etc. Science is starting to back this up too. It’s not just crazy Yoga talk anymore. From my personal experience, the years that I experienced chronic pain were my most stressful, uncertain, busy years of my life... maybe my body was trying to tell me something? Listen to your body. It’s smarter than you may think. ✌🏼

17 anni..probabilmente il.maggiore stato di forma che abbia mai raggiunto.
70 kg,un fiato e una resistenza alla fatica che se volessi riavere ci vorrebbero mesi e mesi.
Mi ricordo che la mattina andavo a scuola il pomeriggio mi allenavo minimo 3 ore e la sera mi facevo pure un paio d ore a calcetto, roba che se ci penso ora giá sono stanco 😂😂
Me lo ripeto sempre in testa che prima o poi torno ❤

Наверно,каждая девушка никогда не сможет забыть этот волшебный миг,когда любимый мужчина надевает ей прекрасное колечко на тот самый палец💍👰🏼🤵🏼
У нас все оказалось немного прозаичней.
В тот момент,когда мы обменивались кольцами,переволновавшись,Артур сначала попытался надеть мне своё кольцо 21 размера,вместо моего 17🙈
От волнения меня начало накрывать волной смеха и я с глупой улыбкой стояла и бормотала «это не моё,это не моё»
Благо Артур услышал меня,а может и увидел, что кольцо «слегка велико» и взял все же моё кольцо💍
Но оказалось,что от волнения и немеренного количества выпитой накануне воды меня залило🤦🏼♀️ и кольцо ,конечно же,налезало с трудом...
Артур все сильнее старался его надеть,мой палец все больше походил на шарпея,а я все отчаяннее сдерживала истерический смех,глядя на то,что у меня было вместо пальца и представляя ,как это будет выглядеть на фото😂
Наконец,все старания увенчались успехом,с кольцом Артура,слава Богу таких проблем не было,а на фото оказалось все достаточно мило🌸
