Ignorance is bliss is what they say. And I have to agree with it. There is something very safe about not knowing whats going to come up. Since you don't know how bad something will be, you don't have the tools to really sit there and analyze how bad it will feel, or be. Workouts are the same way. There are some people that choose not to look a the workout at all until they get to the gym. The object is this way they don't think about it all day long. They worry about it right when they get there and by that time, they are already halfway through the workout. But I think even in the workout you can use the same tactic. If you keep your mind on the single rep you have to do at that moment then you be less likely to get caught up in the upcoming discomfort. You are already tired and breathing hard and if you try to figure out how to regulate your breathing and rest for later then you aren't doing what you need to to get there. This doesn't mean you shouldn't pace and be smart about how fast you are going. But we can run ourselves into the wall by thinking..." oh shit, I have 3 more rounds", or " I'm not even halfway done yet". These thoughts don't help you or move you closer to the goal at hand. They will gum you up with thoughts of how uncomfortable it will be. Block that out. Concentrate only on what you are doing and what will be the best way to keep the reps clicking away. I like to call this "boxing your head in". You build a wall around your head and your thoughts so that there are only the immediate things at hand to deal with. Give it a try!! It takes some work and practice to focus your thoughts like that but it does work! :)
