- That “goal” times seem less and less plausible
- Your hunger for improvement is at war with your self-doubt
- Your discipline is all over the board: some days you can’t wait to train, others, you consider quitting forever

Or do they stay remarkably calm, internalize their training, and go into autopilot as they flow into “the zone?”
It’s not the sport they chose to play.
