I don’t think I suffer from this. Rather, the consensus seems to be that I “sandbag it” – I don’t try hard enough. But I’m too old to be competing for spot on the National team (not that my times ever put me there), nor can I expect to even get sponsored. I have to work the next day, and I’ve had an experience with my lungs filling with blood, very likely due to being on warfarin/coumadin. I have nothing to prove, just being out there is good for me.
