On this day, I did something that will forever burn a hole in my heart. This was my first ever dq in an Obstacle Course Race... Right here, on the rig in this picture. The probable reasons were numerous: My cns was at its limit and I needed recovery, but decided just to get one more Ocr in. I hadn't had time to attend to the basics of #calisthenicstrength for grip and joint health and finally, the loss of a small portion of tendons in my left wrist have left me with a weakened grip.
Now, all of these could have been serious factors but as far as I'm concerned, they were all easily conquerable. The true demon here, was my mind.
I dq'd because my mental state was not where I needed it to be. I tried this rig a few times, I rested for long. But my mind folded. And that's why I couldn't do it.
Yesterday, I went into this same Ocr, thinking "take it easy till THAT obstacle". I did. I didn't push myself to hell and back, I didn't race against anyone else, I just focused my mind on doing that obstacle. And when that obstacle came, it wasn't even an issue... I completed it no problem.
I cannot describe how it felt, overcoming such a mental block that had plagued my Ocr's ever since and how grateful I am that I can do what I do... But if you're struggling with something in life, take a step back and see how much of it is in your head.
You probably have the strength to overcome that obstacle in life already, it's just YOU holding YOU back.
