I forgot to mention - day two of the breaker workout includes 10 x 3-5 minute tempo hill repeats. PUKE!
But you know what kept me going after nearly being side swiped by a speeding SUV? The knowledge that a champion is made a day at a time.
Oh - and in the AM I attended a MVA board meeting, followed by a hour workout in the gym. For the first time in weeks -my little mantra I write on the chalk board in the basketball gym wasn't erased.
It read: FORM. FOCUS. POWER.
And as I did my 25 plyo jumps and wanted to quit half way through because of the burn in my thighs and my heart pounding in my chest - I just repeated that mantra and kept with it.
The mind is a powerful thing.
