Nobody wins training

We train for performance

Your performance may not be my performance.

It means different things to different people

But training isn't that performance.

If it is, either your ego is out of control, or you need to reassess your reasons for training.

Training is about improving

Gradually getting stronger, more mobile, more enduring

It's about increasing your potential

If you are in a competition, injury becomes somewhat acceptable.

Getting injured in preparation for that event, getting hurt in training that is unacceptable.

Yes, shit happens. But good training takes this into consideration and aims to mitigate it.

After all, if you're training to improve performance. How does getting hurt in training align with that goal?
