I like this thread!
Today, I went to that place we can’t talk about. You know which one I’m talking about .
As I finished the second Interval, doubt crept in; my legs felt fatigued and my mind started coming up with reasons to call it off. That’s when the MTP came to the rescue!
“This is meant to be brutal, but that’s why it delivers results. Do your best,” was followed by “I won’t dial it down. I’ll go all in and finish block #3,” and “Come on, you said you’d finish number 3, keep fighting back! Crush one more attack!” and so forth.
Soon, yet an eternity later, I was starting #4 and the message was based on confidence, not hope. “One more to go. Just one merciless, glorious round left," with others like “I will crush it,” and “Attack! Don’t let them regroup!”
I crushed it and got off the bike with shaking legs. I’d showered and was starting to eat my dinner by the time my breathing and heart rate got somewhat back to normal.
That rush, knowing you achieved Honor, Glory, and Victory… It’s a beautiful thing.
