Early Season Stages of Grief

Denial–  I’m fit.  I’m just having a bad day.
Anger–  I’m so mad I let myself get so unfit. I’m getting fit now!  These guys are a-holes for showing me I’m unfit.
Bargaining–  If I get through this, I’m going to start training 30 hours a week so I’m never unfit again.
Depression–  I’m so unfit.  I’m going to quit this sport, just as soon as I get home.
Acceptance–  I accept that I’m unfit.  I’m going to get through this and be better because of it!
