ON MY OWN WORK
When I admitted to my coach that the crick in my neck was from turning to look at the guy next to me while doing bent over rows in the squat rack, he laughed and said that I probably wouldn’t be making that same mistake again.
Whether the weights are heavy or light, I will remember to focus on the work at hand.
So this week when some boy came and started talking to me in the middle of a set, I didn’t turn. I said, “hang on.” I finished my set. And then I said hello.
It’s easy to keep my eyes on my own work at the gym.
I’m going to have to try a little harder at doing the same elsewhere.
