The Pain That Precedes
6 Franklin Hill Sprints
-start each on the 6 minute markSometimes the pain leading up to something is worse than the actual something. Getting up the nerve to call a girl and ask her on a date. Waiting for the meeting with your boss. Picking the right time to have a “talk” with your significant other.
…or waiting to do Fran, or Cindy, or Murph.
You know it’s probably not going to be as bad as you think. In fact afterwards you might feel a sense of relief, a release of pressure, and maybe even joy at an unexpected positive result.
Often the torture we inflict on ourselves is far worse than the actual event. Maybe you do this in anticipation of coming to class. Has class ever really been that bad? Or is it the story in your head that’s horrible, long and drawn out, and hard to endure. The story you’re concocting is the real suffering. That suffering lasts all day leading up to class. Class is actually pretty short. The workout even shorter.
Quit torturing yourself and just show up.
