After the goal is set then comes the action steps and the preparation that takes one either towards the goal or away from it. I, however, believe that we all want to believe that all that we do brings us closer to achieving or realising that goal. But after the training and all the preparation, there is one battle to fight. This one is the make or break battle. The Mind game. This is the ultimate battle of them all when it comes to goal achieving.
Turning chaos into an opportunity (Missing the start time at BarbertonX)
The Barberton ultra, called BarbertonX was going to be the next big event for us to use as a litmus test to check how well we had progressed with training so far, and how well we would ride as a team at Epic. I was eagerly looking forward to riding the event with Justin, the ride was going to be 110km.
