Your Place In the Sun

Fitness woman celebrating success in the sun

The vast majority of your training will be rather monotonous and ordinary. You’ll clock-in, do the work, call it a day and try to string a few days like this together.

There’s an inherent redundancy to getting to better that you have to make peace with. 

It’s a long road of inconvenient and unremarkable work focused on a far-off point you can only imagine.  

It’s not about the one-off shining moment, but the daily building, accumulating and stockpiling. 

And you won’t get to stand in the sun, satisfied and triumphant at the pile you’ve collected resembling a whole new you until you’ve put in the hours, weeks, and months shovelling the dirt. 

That’s just how training works. 

Success is always a focus before it’s a feeling.
