I think this applies to more than just baseball. Personally, this relates to my running. Plan out your training, do your training, visualize the races, tweak the training, more visualization. But when the time comes to pin on that bib, don’t think about it anymore. You’ve already done more than enough thinking. Now it’s just time to RUN. Turn off your brain, and let your body do what you’ve trained it to do.
Any one running an event this weekend? I’ve got a LR on Saturday, but that’s it! I feel so lazy! 😉
Do you ever find your brain getting in the way of your performance? I can turn my brain off pretty easily, but I also have an easy time of getting distracted from what I’m doing. . . I need to find that happy medium that everyone swears exists. 😉
