So, does anyone else get a level of mild anxiety as Full Frontal approaches on the calendar?
Actually, it’s probably a step up from mild - call it a sinking feeling in the gut. I have had a couple of negative experiences where I went out too hot in the 5min and had to bail on the whole thing due to feeling physically and mentally shattered. I think it’s left a scar.
That said, my last FF gave a pretty good increase in numbers, and I felt good (though exhausted) afterwards.
I have FF this Sunday. I am hoping for some gains as I’ve stuck to the plan and found sessions were starting to feel easier, which is a good sign. I think I just find holding myself at those levels for 20 minutes (or even 5 minutes) very hard. I know it’s meant to be hard, but it’s like my brain tries to come up with EVERY excuse why I should get off the bike.
I have previously done the Mental Toughness Plan, but haven’t done it for a while as I couldn’t fit it in with my life (2 young kids, working, studying). I should do it again in the next plan…
Anywho, I would love to hear how others approach FF and if others find it intimidating to the point of ridiculous.
