14 days. 14 days. 14 days.
Today, after a three hour workout, all I could think about was effort. How much effort was I giving? Do I have more in the tank? Can I do things better and make myself sharper? These questions kept piling up and I took a good chunk of time to really think about the answers to them. My effort has been close to as good as I can possibly make it. I keep thinking to myself, 14 days to make the biggest of differences you can. 14 days until you reach a goal that you have been dreaming about for years upon years.
So what do you have? What have you got left in the tank? Can you push as hard as you possibly can for the next 14 days to earn that spot at the table? Can you give just a little bit more, even though every single set burns and you have no energy left? This is the wall that everyone talks about. You are there. Here and now, you have your chance to get past it or let it stop you.
There’s no turning back.
I can’ turn back.
Every single day has to count. The diet and nutrition. The workouts. The cardio. It all has to count because of course there will be time after this…but there won’t be any time like this.
You have to be hungry. I can already feel this demanding everything out of me…but I also know that there’s going to have to be a little piece of me that I find deep within in order to achieve this. I’m going to find something within myself that I didn’t know existed before. And when I find that, I’m going to tap into it and light myself on fire with more effort, motivation, and belief.
They say the last week of prep is the worst. I believe it’s pretty bad. But what I know is that I want this so much more that I am willing to accept whatever happens.
I am ready.
