What a screwy title for a blog post, right?
Those of you who have trained for years, or even decades, have already found it and embraced it.
When training is so ingrained in you it is a no-brainer whether or not you will be training on any given day. Of course you will, it is a huge part of your life.
You don’t have to decide whether or not you’ll give 100% effort on each rep.
Surely, you will!
Does that mean that progress will come in leaps and bounds after many years of training? No, not at this point, but progress will still be made. It just takes a lot more to make it happen now than when you were new.
For new people, the results will come fast, but what happens when they no longer do?
What if it doesn’t seem like fun any more?
What if you plateau and can’t break through it?
What if the basics seem boring to you?
Will you quit? Or will you dig in and establish your rhythm, knowing that you are in for the long haul?
It’s a lot like a relationship, when the novelty wears off do you break and run? Or do you see the value in that person, and persevere?
The iron is a lot like that.
You’ll train when it is not convenient.
You’ll train when whether conditions are miserable.
You’ll train when you just don’t feel like it.
You’ll train when you are tired, aching, or hungry.
You will, because you have found your rhythm.
