You must be aware of the well known Murphy’s law: “if anything can go wrong, it will”. We all experience in some way or another during our lifetime how much this is true. We all feel several times that we are the victims of a conspiracy «from high above”, and just nothing turns out the way we planned. For example, the more we hurry somewhere, the more likely we will be delayed by every possible external factor. The bus that normally comes earlier, now arrives late. Where there never used to be a traffic jam, now we face one, and we could easily continue the list…

When they have to cope with external factors. The fight with various fields, other people, and dogs
When they have problems with the trainer or their training partners. Could be when they are in a training camp.
When they go for various competitions
Murphy’s difficulties of track-, cross country and mass competitions
