Sunday 28 August 2011

Posted by The Coach on August 27th, 2011

If you ask those who spend an abundant of time on their own hurting, sweating, bleeding and suffering immense pain you will find what motivates them in doing so varies greatly from individual to individual. There is however a common by-product of this solitude spent at often high intensities. That perhaps ‘accidental’ commonality is an enhanced modality of self discovery. When we spend time familiarising ourselves with certain systems or our work or whatever interest it is that intrigues us we inherently become ‘better’ at it. Like so, this principle applies to the self. The more time we spend with ourselves, especially in the realm of high intensity pain and suffering the better we know who we are, our physiological and psychological limits, our percieved thresholds and what we can achieve if and when we choose to… The reason being is that this pain and intense discomfort has much to teach the weary individual, it narrows itself to survival and what you must do in order to flourish and survive well… Do not be afraid of pain, do not fear knowing yourself through spending lengthy time with yourself whilst hurting and whilst simply being who you are with yourself. These are the moments of self discovery that matter the most, these moments are what define you and shape your existence to the rest of the world… More importantly these moments define who you are for you… SS.

Best of luck to all competitors running today… Run the race in your mind first, then the physical race itself becomes easy…
