Forge Philosophy 1-7-08

“In foot pursuit of Angie”   Today’s workout was a painful variation of Angie, which usually consists of 100 pullups, 100 pushups, 100 squats, and 100 situps.  In order to challenge everyone a little bit, and enjoy our tropical weather at the same time, we added a running element to it.  Before each set of 100 reps, we added a 200 meter run.    Although the runs were short, the pain was long.  Great job to everyone who came and suffered!   For those of you who didn’t find your way to the forge today, take comfort.  The Blacksmith understands!   This is a perfect workout for you to do on your own.     Just find yourself a playground, bring a stopwatch, and say to yourself: “3-2-1-GO!”  Then, post your time in comments so that we can heap praise upon you for your heroic effort.   Make no mistake – the opportunity available in my suggestion goes far beyond the physical.  In forcing yourself to make up a missed workout, one conquers the mind’s natural instinct to resist discomfort unless it is pre-scheduled.  Resist the temptation to take it easy if you miss a workout.  Your body AND your mind need the work.    Master thyself.
