THIS. 100X this.
to them and to most people, who were never competitive athletes, they don’t understand. they think living is something different than an athlete thinks is living.‘live a little bit’ they say. living a little bit means something different to everyone.
going to my parents house is always tough. especially when my grandma cooks dinner “well cant you just have this? here sashy, take a bite of this. try this” NO. you dont understand im training. im working towards competition.
going around your family, or anyone, who does not understand what you are doing just wont drop it. they dont understand and they wont let it go.
