"Oh! No! The athlete is slowing down."
The same is true for me. Close to the end of the race, with the finish line in sight, but with sore muscles and mental fatigue, I am slowing down.
I am calling this change in pace, the 'I AMs' of my Olympic Knitting.
I am tired.
I am very tired.
I am sore. I hurt here
I am finished sleeve number one.
I am half finished sleeve number two.
I am going to win a gold medal.
