Sometimes life throws us a curve-ball and we have to miss a few classes.
When that happens it’s easy to feel a bit ‘out of the loop’ and though it really shouldn’t be a problem, sometimes our subconscious takes over and starts playing silly games with your confidence, and it seems to get harder and harder to get back in the dojang. If you’ve ever been in that position, I bet a few of these thoughts have gone through your head:
“I’ve not been for ages, I’m so unfit it’s going to hurt when I go back”
“I’ve forgotten everything!”
“Everyone else has learned a load of new stuff and I’ll look daft because I can’t do it”
“They’ll all think I’m useless for not training”
Trust me, we’ve all been there, and I’ve heard all these B.S. excuses a hundred times over the years.
The simple fact is thats just our silly subconscious talking. The same one that makes us procrastinate about all sorts of things. Sure, you may need to take it steady for a couple of classes to ease back into a routine, but other than that you’ve got nothing to worry about. Worried about what others are thinking? Think about it, how much do you worry about other people’s training? The simple fact is, we miss you when you’re not there, and the only thing we’re likely to be thinking is “hey I hope they’re ok and back training soon”.
There’s a very simple solution if you’ve missed some training and want to know how to get going again. Take a top from Nike and JUST DO IT! All you need to do is take that first step back into the dojang and you’ll soon realise that you had nothing to worry about.
We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
