The Fighter Mindset: From Burnout to the Medal Podium
Hazel Gale

A really lucid, inspiring and thought-provoking article. I can relate a lot to the chasing down of success purely out of a fear of failure (when I read this article, I realised more than ever how much of my joy has been stolen to this end), and to the ways in which that can (cruelly) just antagonise the body, mind and heart. I would love to see more from this writer here too — would like to know whether her whole concept of ‘success’ has changed since going through this journey and whether she thinks that perhaps the boxing world (not to mention the fitness industry) needs educating about M.E. too. It seems to me that this is a much misunderstood and underrated issue.
