'GASSING OUT' - Our Physical Limitations

<< < (2/2)


--- Quote from: Endurance on November 02, 2009, 08:41:47 AM ---I'm a cycling coach on the side and work with a lot of high end athletes.  There's a secondary benefit beyond just the physical conditioning that comes with a regular workout routine; it improves your ability to endure suffering.  The deeper you know that well of inner strength is, the less the petty aches, pains, and nusances bother you and the more you can mentally push on through the fight.

IMHO, that's why Lance Armstrong had an unfair advantage over his competitors; compared to the rigors of chemo, racing a bike all over France seemed easy.

I feel that. When I roll jiu jitsu or wrestling I find myself digging deeper and deeper once I have exhausted my strength.
