Running and pushing has at some point dissociated form anger and annoyance.
In fact, should we run or train using anger and annoyance as a driving force? Are they beneficial sides to be used or are they the path to disappointment and maybe even injury?
Surely it is better to run at peace, pushing when you feel it is needed, being happy with the outcome of choosing not to push hard and realising that you really can’t fight with yourself. Is it that anger and annoyance masks the sense that you aren’t at one with yourself or is it a way of focusing on the push?
I have used anger to drive me forwards when others and myself felt that the early end of a journey is inevitable, but it never felt as fulfilling as just pushing because I knew I could. Is it the fact that I know I can push harder if needed, that I know the dark voice of doubt is actually my analysis of a situation and a tool that shows the way to proceed as apposed to showing how not to proceed?
Rambling on as I am, I have just one question….
Do you use anger and annoyance to find something that wasn’t there before when pushing yourself to your limits?
