Look, we all feel shit at this point before a race.. I'm going through it too; but I recognise it as a natural psychological thing.
Let it wash over you right now.....
You will go into auto pilot on Sunday when the race starts. Trust me. You've had expert tuition.....
I really do think that the psychological aspect of sport is overlooked. It's a tough area to deal with. I know because it lost me major stuff years back when I did other sports competitively.
KK - I know you mean well and I really really appreciate it but I've buggered my back and can barely walk at the moment and I've had to defer. All I was doing was putting me pants on this morning and I ended up in a heap on the floor. That's why I'm a bit down. I know what you mean about the psychological stuff though. It's cost me sporting prizes in the past. I used to get to the final hurdle convinced I'd lose, so I did.
But good luck on Sunday and I hope you have a storming race.
Really hope that things work out for you FF. Its gutting when things like this happen so close to your d-day. But you're already looking beyond Sunday, and thats important, so well done.
BTW - as a true Scotsman, I've always thought pants were over-rated. Think you might now agree.
Have you deferred Steve too?
