Anyone ever feel like they’re in quicksand? It’s a horrendous feeling. The harder I try to get out, the more effort I put in the deeper I sink. I don’t know any other way but to try harder, and, I just sink deeper. I Get worse and worse. My lifts go downhill. My technique worsens. My attitude follows. My small vision of hope slowly disappears…
I’ve never been in quicksand but I have a feeling I am feeling it right now. The harder I work to fix my clean- the worse it gets. The harder I try- the more I fail and frustration follows. The only thing I can compare it to is quicksand.
BUT…You know one day I will leap out of that quicksand and sore with them eagles. It’s easy to quit. It’s hard to get back up. I might still be sinking every single day, but I just keep telling myself it can’t get worse…It can’t get worse. But then it does. It all comes down to what you’re willing to sacrifice to get to the top.
I’ve said it once and I will say it again- I will either make it in this sport or I will literally die trying.
