When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
 
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.Life is queer with its twists and turns,As every one of us sometimes learns,And many a failure turns aboutWhen he might have won had he stuck it out;Don’t give up though the pace seems slow—You may succeed with another blow,Success is failure turned inside out—The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,And you never can tell how close you are,It may be near when it seems so far;So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit—It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”- Edgar A. Guest

I love lifting heavy shit. I look at the bar, the weights, and I giggle with excitement, and sometimes I’ve cried. I love trying to max out and fatiguing from lifting more than I thought I could, I love failing and coming back the next time and killing it. I lift more in a week than most men lift in a month, and I feel amazing doing it. 
You can’t cheat the bar! It doesn’t lie to you. That’s what I love about it. No matter who you are, what your story is, you’re either gonna kick the shit out of the bar, or the bar is going to kick the shit out of you — either way, there will be a lesson learned! And no one on this planet can take that away from you!

Fierce Forward Create an Inspiration Contest

Here’s an interesting challenge that a friend of mine is hosting on her facebook page. I suggest, if you’re avid about fitness, and dedicated to motivating and inspiring others that you check this challenge out. 

Jan 21

YMCA mi 00:29 09:39 pace

I was trying to do a tempo run, and since I’ve never done one before I did a beginner type. 5 x 3 mins at 6.5 1 min at 5.5 for recovery. Apparently I need to do this weekly to improve on speed, and endurance.

Bench Press 5 rep max 45, 65, 85, 105, 115 (maxed out at 3 reps here). The WOD was 6 x 9 Thrusters / Burpees I totally forgot to clock my time here, >_<

This was not RX’d either. My knee kept feeling like it was going to blow so I dropped the weight from RX to just bar to gett’er done!

YMCA 3.2 mi 00:25 07:55 pace

 

#MAKEITCOUNT I was really trying to get some better speed. running between a 6.3 and an 8 speed. I have no idea what I’m doing, I’m just forcing myself to run faster lol…I will start to do some reading on how to properly get a better speed.

 mi 00:58 11:35 pace 

Ran very very slow 5.1 - 5.5 here, all I wanted to do was gain miles. It was very easy and comfy pace.

So inspiring….
