Eva Pepin-Helie Offers Some Reflexions

 
Eva Pepin-Helie Offers Some Reflexions
 
November 17, 2010 -  Eva Pepin-Helie    
 

After having a really great month with energy to spare in more ways than one (school, climbing) I hit a wall and everything felt hard to me. I tried to find the cause for all this but hard to say.

Maybe it’s the weather? But I think it is more than that. I realized that it was a question of training cycles. The last month I did awesome in my climbing like never before. It felt like I was floating, like I just dropped 50 pounds.

When I’m in this kind of situation it is hard for me to slow down because it is just so much fun! But at one point you have to realize that this can’t last forever and that even though you feel great, you have to stop before the feeling does. I could not get myself to do that and I started feeling an old injury coming out. AGAIN!

 

Lucky for me I slowed down in time. After six years of climbing I’m still learning about managing training cycles. We can’t be on fire all the time in any given sports. There are ups and downs in our performance and we can’t change it.

Finally, when this kind of situation appear in our live we have to accept it and take advantage of that time to relax and live a little.

Cheers

Éva Pépin-Hélie
