Ever since i’ve started training later now . . 9-10ish, i can see how EASY it would be to come up with a million excuses not to go. .
Gotta get up early . .
By the time i get home it will be midnight . .
I won’t get time to relax . .
Gotta cook dinner . .
BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I get it . .
And i feel those thoughts creeping in late in the afternoon too . .
But with me, if there’s a weakness, i’m going to fix it . . that weakness is no good to me . .
I refuse to let those thoughts manifest and bread little babies of excuses.
. . so until i’m bouncing off the walls with energy for those late sessions, i’m going to keep training through that feeling of “uncomfortableness” going through the motions until those ugly thoughts are no longer lingering around inside my head . .
My body will just work when i want it to work . . and my head won’t bother coming up with excuses, because there is, and will be no fucking good excuse.
If you’re freakin’ house burnt down at midnight, i doubt you’d be concerned that you have to “get up early” . . priorities have changed now haven’t they?
Don’t let your mind trick you. Do not let it fool you.
It’s looking for the easy way. You bet your ass it is . . because that’s what it’s used to . . you’ve trained it to be like this . . you’re going to have to work double time for things to change . . physically AND especially, ESPECIALLY, mentally.
i STRONGLY believe that once you get your butt in there. . and you’re surrounded by people that made the effort to be there just like YOU did, that you’re part of something bigger . . something special.
The “late night crew” edge each other on without having to say anything, you know ? . . there’s an unspoken, mutual understanding there.
It doesn’t matter what time it is, someone in the world is going to be training . . that’s how i look at it.
BOTTOM LINE: ANYTIME IS A GOOD TIME . . AND ANY AMOUNT OF TIME THAT YOU HAVE IS ENOUGH TIME.
Just get through that ONE session. Just get through that ONE day.
Your body will thank you for it no matter what.
