Okay team, the first videos of my Spartan Sprint series were totally off-the-top-of-my-head. You probably deduced that.
As I look back now I see motivation behind each exercise so I’m focusing on these ten things (10 because there’s a running video coming) and I’m going to expand and elaborate on them.
So… The number one exercise is still – Stay Inspired.
So two things on Inspiration this week.
One: take action when you’re inspired. Don’t just schedule something.
Like, you may be on the couch (literally or metaphorically) right now reading this and think yeah, I should do something… in fact I will do something… tomorrow I’m for sure gonna work out!
And you won’t. You gotta strike while the iron is hot, you gotta pick up the guitar while the song’s in your head.
So Make Moves Not Schedules.
Two: We were talking about being pissed off.
Anger is rarely a useful emotion, and even if this circumstance it can be dangerous. I’ve pushed too hard on a run and hurt myself because I was trying to vent anger. With all that caution though it can be a good thing to be pissed off.
Being pissed off is a great thing to bring to a work out as long as it doesn’t make you reckless.
And being pissed off at yourself for not being able to do a pull up may keep you trying to get that pull up. As long as the anger doesn’t turn inward and start telling you that it’s too late to get in shape – that’s bad anger. Let the anger tell you it’s not too late and you can fight. Fight against the decay.
Train well Spartan.
