The 40% Rule

Posted on Posted in Backblasts

  • QIC: Papa Smurf
  • The PAX: WMD, Inside Out, tone Deaf, Smog(visiting from Hilton Head)

David Goggins says we only use about 40% of our physical capabilities..we also have 2-3000 thoughts per hour and when it comes to exercising, we often tell ourselves that we can’t do this or that…HOGWASH I say…you can do way more than you think..

4 locals and one visitor showed up for a beautiful morning of work at Sunshine Park.  The Gladiators have returned but they will be gone  within a month or so. Smog posted from the Hilton Head AO and hopefully was rewarded with a good start to the day.

Tone Deaf was again unimpressed with the Q’s music selection but he humbly and graciously nailed the workout. The pool was used for a nice Ciabatta and the heart rate for going with box jumps and Derkins. All was going well moving towards the finish until Inside Out requested Burpees on the modified suicides…he’s sneaky that way..

It is easy to take everything we have for granted. Today is a gift from God. Treat it that way.
