How tired are you?

A footballer from the wrong end of the M62 was interviewed on one of his most important goals – a last minute equaliser, scored from 30 yards. He said that he hit the ball ‘as hard as he could’ because ‘every bone in his body ached’; he didn’t want to lay the ball off and build up the play any further as he was too tired to run further towards the box. 

Two interesting points for me:

  1. Even the best performers get tired; they give their all to achieve top results (you would have thought he was able to cope with 90 minutes of football; this shows the difference between 'competing' and 'completing')
  2. Even when you are tired out, you can still perform to high levels – if your brain will let you
