Oh, poor David. Poor poor David.
This guy, I have to tell you, stuck out what had to have been the toughest hour to knock on his door in a long time. And you know what? He kicked its ass. Hardcore.
Now, next time he hits this workout (see below) he’s going to blow it out of the water. His times are going to drop like a rock and his reps are going to shoot through the roof. The point is he kept moving, pressing forward.
One of the big problems many of the athletes I run into have is that they’re way to willing to allow themselves to hit their lactic threshold (the wall) and just stop. If you keep stopping when you hit the wall, you’re never going to progress. You’ve got to intentionally hit that wall, dig yourself in and get set for the long slog that’s going to drag you through it. By progressively pushing that envelope further and further, we grow.
David’s determined to grow. He clawed through. Awesome job. I’ll see everybody (and anybody that wants to come) next Wednesday, 8pm, here at West River.
