Nervousichology

No. Don’t waste time to Google or Wiki the above title. I’m sure the word doesn’t exist. The nearest match you’ll find on the net will bring you to “Neuropsychology”, which has nothing to do with what I’m going to write today.

No time to dramatize anything much today. Just trying to make use of a little time left off my lunch break time. Then, back for more eye-drooling-on-the-spreadsheets-and-drawings activities. I just simply want to say that I’ve started to feel nervous.

Nervous with next week’s KL marathon. Heck, I even feel nervous to do the 20km long run this weekend.

And, I'm nervous with PD triathlon, next month. Standing by the shore prior to the swim start in a triathlon never failed to give me jitters, big ones.

Why am I nervous?

Because, I keep on thinking that I lack of training. Nowadays I train every evening after work, for as much as I could possibly do when the weather and time permit. I think I'm doing fine with training, but I just can’t feel the ‘umph’, yet. And I rest my self well while sleeping. But that too has started to show some degree of deficiency. Asyik tido lambat je lately.

However, it always work well for me to think big. It helps keep my nervousness at bay. For example, I'd think about a marathon when I’m in for a 10km or 15km race. Or, I would be thinking about Ironman triathlon when I’m preparing my mental for a marathon or an OD triathlon. When I think big, smaller things may appear, well, small.

And that helps, for me at least.
