Bruce Lee said, “Do not pray for an easy life. Pray for the strength do endure a difficult one.” Such a good quote.
At Crossfit Upland this is our mantra. We want workouts to be difficult. The harder the workout, the tougher your mind becomes.
A tough mind is the key. Its a way to manage all the crazy things life throws your way.
Of course, difficult is subjective. What seems impossible to one, might be easy to another. How do you know when you are challenged? For me, its when I tell myself I want to quit. It’s that voice in my head telling me I’m pushing myself too hard and I need to stop. This voice is wanting me to be soft. It wants me to take the easy route. I need to drown out that voice with my sweat.
Push forward and never quit.
