Your Opponent

Your opponent, in the end, is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself, your negative internal voices, your level of determination.–Grace Lichtenstein

It was interesting coming across this quote via The Sportsminded Blog. I had just left the library, after a strength workout at the gym. I gazed into the very grey twilight, with darkness now encroaching at barely 5pm. I decided another one of my goals for winter training would be to rise above the gloom of the winter and get my training in, regardless of how the weather makes me feel.

So it was great to read this quote!!
