Here’s the deal. Sometimes you’re going to have a shitty day. Nothing is going to go your way. Your alarm didn’t go off and now you woke up late. You thought you had coffee for the morning, you were wrong. There were no beans left. The laundry was left in the washer overnight because you forget to put the clothes in the dryer before bed. Traffic is gridlocked. You can see where I’m going with this. It’s just one of those days. We’ve all had them.
Having those type of days may end of leaking into your gym time. Being at the gym is supposed to be your opportunity to leave all that nonsense outside. Sometimes, there’s just no stopping it. Whatever happened to you during your day may end up affecting your workout. Stress aint no joke. It sucks, but it happens. For some, having subpar workouts can be frustrating. You aren’t hitting numbers you normally do, everything feels heavy, you feel like a busted can of biscuits. Feeling your normal self seems so distant. You know this isn’t how you would normally perform.
Guess what? You’re just having a bad day. Shrug it off. Your level of fitness didn’t’ drop overnight. Don’t trip chocolate chip. What you can do in that situation is just be the best version of you that you can during that workout. Weights feeling heavy? Drop them down. Can’t seem to find your normal intensity? Find a flow and just focus on moving good with some purpose and catch a pump. Break a sweat. Sometimes you just don’t have it in you that day. And, that’s fine.
Just make sure that when you show up to the gym you give the best version of you that day. Wherever you are, meet yourself there and have some fun. In the end, that’s what it’s all about and that’s really all that matters. Bad days happen. How you deal with them is on you.
