Discussed how, each night, we make the decision whether to post the next morning, and what we base that decision on. In the past, if not injured, I would usually decide based on (1) whether I feel I need to fit in an extra workout that week, and (2) whether I “feel like it” or I’m not in the mood. The first is an ok thing to take into consideration, but the second can lead to the wrong decision. More recently, I try to take stock each night of where I am mentally, and if it’s not a good place (anxious, sad, feel a little down or off and can’t explain why, etc.), I try extra hard to post the next morning – even though I often don’t “feel like” posting at those times. Like clockwork, posting will diminish those negative feelings, or get rid of them entirely. My advice to the PAX who are in the same boat as me: try to take stock of where you’re at each night, and make that a factor when you’re considering whether to post. In fact, I recommend making it the #1 factor, because the benefits in this regard far outweigh the fitness benefits of any single workout, in my opinion.
