One of my friends aptly used this name for that period of training when you’re just doing work and not really seeing much progress. Practice the skills, move the weight, recover, and repeat. If you recall from high school history, the Horse Latitudes, also known as the Doldrums was that area of the tropical ocean where the wind just wouldn’t blow, the rain wouldn’t fall, and it would take a lot of rowing and patience to make any progress. Fortunately, the story about horses being thrown overboard in this area to save water is most likely a myth, but I digress.

|I train for a lot of different things, but always with a date on the calendar.|
