The Insanity (Road to Sparta Series #2)

…continued from “The Dad Bod”

I was 5 minutes in and I thought I was going to die

Everything hurt

Everything burned

60 days of this was impossible

Another 20 minutes was impossible

I was never going to make it

But there was no way I could quit…not yet

I had to keep going

Alone in my basement

In front of the TV

There I was

Standing at the border of mediocrity and greatness

Up, down, side to side

On my knees

On the ground

Begging for air

Pleading for recovery

Whining like a baby

Shaun T and his perfectly sculpted physique telling me to move

To go harder

To push

I hated every grueling second

And I was mad at how hard it was

Mad at how out of shape I was

And how long it would take to get back

I had no idea how much joy was waiting on the other side of this process

Did I do every single workout – No

Did I stick to the plan 100% – No

Did I keep going – Yes

Did I finish every class I started – You bet

Did I get stronger, faster, and in amazing shape – Roger that

Was I dripping in sweat after each workout – Ya buddy

Did I do it even when I didn’t want to – Every time

Did I start smiling – Yep

Did I start living – Like never before

Did I stumble upon an amazing and profound insight

“The Key Insight”

This isn’t just my journey. It’s the beginning of yours. I struggled to find this part of my life and I spent years searching for fulfillment in all the wrong places. If you fear the work required to find the joy, you have to know THIS.
