Training should not be punishment

In 1 on January 1, 2010 at 5:25 am

Great line about training by an athlete– “It’s all about learning to do it smart without punishing yourself.” I’ve heard this idea from some of the best performers in the world, but never this succinctly. Training should not be felt as “punishment.”  I can say from experience and research that what people end up being “trained in” then is punishment and too easily accepting the judgment of others and irrational self-judgment, usually not in whatever they are trying to accomplish.
