We’re all aware of this, but it who is willing to do it that reaps the positive benefits of such action.
Pm workout: 5 mile ruck march w/50lbs @ easy pace
Let’s go! #dowork
Pick stuff up and put it down. #IronWork
110 Kettlebell swings unbroken w/ 53# [lbs]
ran for 60 min on road @ easy pace.
Notes: This recovery wasn’t about time nor distance, but more of the mental aspect of not quitting while running straight for 60 min no matter if there were steep hills or not… Well, I stopped 20 times. My second goal was to just complete the run. I succeeded. Next time I’ll try to limit the amount of times I stop to 15 or less. #progess #neverquit
End result: 5.19 mi in 1:00:21
The warmup: Calm before the storm
Decided to #dowork local today. Didn’t feel like chasing anyone down for my keys at the gym again.
When working out, train your mind first. The physical comes later. Results are the byproduct of both…
…if you can train your mind to go to that dark place and stay there and deal with the pain then you’re almost there…
…it’s only in that dark place where great change takes place. Learn to deal with it. Learn to love it…
That dark place in turn, becomes a place where growth occurs, where pain is nothing but a passing phase. Merely a temporary state…
Don’t listen to the lies of your mind telling you to quit, that you’re tired, that it hurts. Those are illusions…
…but most are afraid to go to that dark place, which is what stifles progress. Push past your limitations. Then look back and laugh.
