There was a lot of discussion yesterday, concerning today's workout "Bert". It's cold, it's icy, it's windy . . .
Instead of excuses, let's start looking for bragging rights. Instead of following the rest of the population with reasons not to do something, let's choose to do things that will make us stand a little straighter and reaffirm our confidence in ourselves.
Be honest with yourself. You didn't come here looking for easy. Quick workouts and magic pills are not the reason that people walk in the door to this gym.
We have never done this workout before. So with less than ideal conditions, you are guaranteed a personal record and are setting yourself up for a future PR when we do this workout, possibly under better conditions. Win + win, baby
Workouts are a celebration of what we can do, not a punishment. You came in for the struggle, to prove something to yourself. Today is forecast to be 43 degrees. Any day above freezing in January is a day to celebrate. Windy or not.
The sidewalk was blown off at 4 am this morning. I chopped a hole in the snowbank at the end of Fisher Flooring so there is no need to run in the street. By noon, it will be completely melted off.
This workout isn't easy, it isn't fast, you might want to pack a lunch, but when you finish you will know that you have accomplished something that most people wouldn't even start.
Anyone can do the workouts in this gym, but it definitely isn't a place for everybody. You already made the choice to be here, let's make it happen.
