I posted yesterday on how I’m in doubt about plans for future ultra events. However, there’s another take on this subject, or for that matter, any other physical challenge. This attitude is, “do what you can with the body you have!”
Now, this attitude is not original with me. I read this somewhere, and I can’t remember where. But it makes sense. Rather than trying to diet, slim down, and get into “better condition,” whatever that may mean, do what you can now. And push yourself to do more.
The idea here is that physical perfection is probably beyond most of us, So we use this mythical ideal to hold us back, rather than enjoy what we can. So, do what you can with the body you have ! And enjoy yourself!
