Thursday: Light at the End of the Tunnel

When we move past the half-way point on our journey towards a competition or benchmark it’s easy to relax because of what we’ve already accomplished.

 

The voice in your head begins to talk…”you’ve already done a great deal of work…what you’ve done will hold you over for a week or so…”

 

But don’t fall into this trap.

 

Now I’m not saying that you shouldn’t de-load or take rest periods (because who doesn’t like to sit down after some heavy squats). What I do mean is that when you’re in training you’re IN TRAINING. You have to see it through to the end to realize your true potential.

 

Every Monday and Wednesday at 8:30PM I get to watch the Oly Club work their hearts out to achieve their goals. They are over halfway done with their mesocycle and I must admit that it’s really inspiring to see how motivated they are to see it through to the end. We should all take a cue from them and never give up because Full Effort is truly Full Victory.

 

Keep up the great work guys!

 

-Coach Murillo
