Food for Thought: Finding Your Mojo Again

The following is from Words with Lisbeth

Ever feel like you’ve lost your mojo?

  • Nothing is working right.
  • No way you’re ever going to PR again on anything.
  • No way you’re getting those pull-ups.
  • No way you’re ever going to lose your gut or get into skinny jeans.
  • And your clean and jerk sucks.

Everyone hits that point sometime. So, when you do, you really have two choices: Train more or train less.

Would doing more workouts help? Maybe you’re only going two or three times a week?

Or maybe you’re doing too many workouts: 6 days in a row, 8 days in a row, 10 days. Overtraining.

Sometimes you want it straight up, sometimes you need to mix it with water or some ginger beer, sometimes you just need to stay away from it.

Be responsible for and with yourself. (And remember: Friends don’t let friends train and drive. Wait a few minutes until your hands stop shaking and you can walk without falling down.)

You’ll find your mojo again. Hang in there. Take a moment and consider what’s going on with you. Look at everything in your life: physical, mental, emotional, and social factors. Then, think about your training, and decide to dial it up or dial it down. Figure things out.
