Forgetting and forgiving

I am slightly embarrassed to even write or think about this, but sometimes you just got to face the music and deal. That is what this is all about. I've most definitely raced some races that I'd really rather forget even happened. This past Sunday was no exception to that. I would love to just erase any evidence that I even entered my name into this particular meet.
Somewhere in my mind I again I thought that I was ready to race. That couldn't have been farther from the truth, I was not even an iota ready. For me there's something about lacing up my spikes and taking it to the rubber that gets me ridiculously excited. It's a good thing when I'm on point and properly training but a bad thing when I'm out of my game. This time around I wasn't prepared. I knew that I wasn't top performance material but I really thought that I could at least hit respectable times in the races I planned on running. Back to the post of 'You get what you give'. 
I will not divulge any times or even what meet it was, but I will take account for the poor performance, log it in my mental mind, and remember I don't want to see those times again. I will not be hard on myself like I would in the past, forgive, and take control of the one thing that links itself to performance and that I can control, my training. Time to step up to plate.
