I'm dealing with the same situation this week. i feel really pressured to do arnold's, but because of school, i've not trained as much as i would like to be confident. midterms are this week, so i don't want to think about my game while i'm studying, and also i have no money right now. yet the pressure to compete and excell is intense.
it's one of those times to remind yourself that it's just a hobby, and it doesn't put food on the table.
