There is a huge difference between when you are training or prepping for a goal and then the day you are supposed to put it all to work.  I see and hear people get so frustrated when certain segments of their workouts or training aren't PRs or crushing times.  They can have a great day then when the next day there aren't world records, they think they have lost it and will be shitty for the rest of the season.  This is NOT the case.  When you are in TRAINING mode it's about trying to get change on your body so that it is ready for competition.  You should be doing your PRACTICE, which is when you are working under low weight and intensity and working to improve movement.  Then you have your workouts or lifting parts.  These are the TRAINING parts.  Yes, you want to push hard on these within the boundaries they are set in.  It's not meant to be pushing to 100% or achieving a true 100% each and every piece of every session.  You will need to sometimes so that your body is prepared to feel the sensations of pushing that hard and going that dark.  But this whole time frame is the "journey" that they talk about when they say "you need to enjoy the journey."  There will be many ups and downs during this time but you can't get all " I love this" or "I hate this".  It's a matter of enjoying the ride for the ride.  Even the day of, when it all comes down to the moment it counts, you want to enjoy the ride.  However, it's here where the pressure is on.  All the stuff you did has lead you to this point.  The hard part is not letting the pressure of "finally being there" get to you.  The change in the mindset MUST be, "I have done all the work.  Now it's just time to let my body do what it does."  This doesn't mean you don't care or blow off the importance of the day.  It means you embrace the day and the excitement of the day.  You use the energy and the adrenaline to move you further than you can do during your training times.  But it's being confident in what you have done to get here.  Basically, there should be ENJOYMENT in both parts of the journey.  The joy of the hunt and the joy of the execution.  Hopefully, you noticed that I never once said the enjoyment is in the win.  Yes, it's ALWAYS fun to win but that is something you will never be able to control.  So with that, just enjoy the ride and every part of it! :)
