Withstand (Why I love fitness)

socrates

When you do the plank,

you maintain your position.

The first seconds are easy.

The first minute is harder.

The last seconds are where

you truly prove yourself.

It’s a mind game.

You feel the pain,

you’re shaking,

but you withstand.

That is what you teach your body to do.

That is what you teach your mind to do.

Withstand.

Withstand the pain,

withstand the difficulties.

‘You have to learn to resist.’

You have to learn to resist the temptation to give up.

You have to learn to resist the temptation to quit.

You withstand,

and you improve from it.

This is why I love fitness.
