When you are having a hard time with someone, what do you do?  When you are working on something and you're struggling, what do you do?  When you are frustrated, when you are irritated, when you are tired, etc....what do MOST people do?  They walk away.  I think this is fine under most life situations because you need to get your head straight or you need to get some thoughts square in your head.  But in a workout/training or an event, this walking away, or what I'll call DISENGAGING, is the LAST thing you want to do.  Have you ever decided you were going to break up a rep scheme and to "make sure you rest" you either walk over the bar, or you do a little turn and walk away?  The premise is that it lets you separate yourself from the pain of the push.  The problem with it is that if you KNOW it hurts, you now have to "convince" yourself to get back to work.  I remember when I was getting my black flame tattoo on my side and I experienced this exact thing.  I was four hours in and the artist wanted to take a break.  My side was hurting so bad.  It literally was taking everything I had to stay on the table.  Maybe I was being a baby but I really starting to question if I was going to make it to the end or not.  When he asked me if I wanted to take a break, part of me wanted to but then reality set in and I wasn't sure if I would be able to get back on the table and have him grind into my side again.  I needed him to finish it that day.  So I told him exactly that,  "look man, I'm afraid if we stop, I won't be able to get myself back on the table so we need to keep going until its done."  He was cool and kept going.  I appreciated that.  But what I learned was that it was easier to stay in the fight rather than going through spurts and having to get myself back "up" to go back to it.  The workouts are the same way.  You cant walk away from the bar.  You have to stay in it.  I'm not saying you cant put the bar down.  But if you are standing right there then subconsciously you know you aren't done yet and you can still pick it up.  It's literally right there.  There less reset.  There is less thinking.  There will be less rest and you will get done sooner.  Try it next time.  Just stay in the fight until the fight is done!!:)
