3rd May, 2012 — Workout — Leg Raises

Man those last 10 reps of the 3rd set in the warmup were brutal! I’m glad I stuck it out and maintained good form throughout, my legs were shaking. Before i did these I was going over the notes in the book, and it said take four seconds to go down — I must’ve missed that the first skim over — That definitely intensified it for being a warmup. I’m glad to see the Straight Leg Raises are two up pause one two down again.

On the second round of set 1, I pushed myself at the end, because it was starting to get hard around rep 6. I’m not quite sure why I went to 11 — I guess I just like that burn, you know what I’m talking about 🙂 ?

So I’m halfway through Set 2, and in the back of my mind It’s telling me to quit because the book said to do 2-3 work sets and I’ve met that after this last 10. But as soon as I had that thought the other side of me, who wasn’t a quitter or a whiner, took over. The internal battles are the strongest I feel. There’s no way you will succeed if you aren’t capable of beating down the whiner inside. Everyone has the capability — Think of something you’re good at, and imagine how many times the whiner inside tried to derail your progress. The other side of you took over either consciously or subconsciously and it prevailed. Now be conscious about it and don’t quit!
