Kill That Voice
You know what they’re talking about: The voice in your head that has always been with you, right from the early days. It tells you that you can’t do this, that you’re not strong enough, fast enough, smart enough, skinny enough, pretty enough, or sexy enough. It tells you to stop, to wait, to slow down, to quit.
Kill that f*****.
I mean it. Kill it.
Grind its face into the dirt with your kettlebell, and beat the everlovin’ sh** out of it.
Do it for yourself, for who you were way back when — back when you were a kid and somebody told you to “be a good girl and play nice” or “let the girls win” or “don’t blow your own horn.”
Remember all those well-intentioned (and some not-so-well-intentioned) folks who ever gave you the idea that it was okay to be less than you really are? They were wrong. Most of all, do it for who you want to be — and, maybe, for who you want your kids to be.
When you finish your workout today, don’t just put the barbell down. Throw the barbell down. Throw it down with every last shred of energy you have left and yell “Take that mother******!”
Terrify that voice. Kill that voice. Kill it dead and don’t let it come back.
Hey Check this out Lis found this crazy shit....who wants in? http://www.ruggedmaniac.com/
I for one, can ALWAYS summon the will to spike the barbell off the ground as hard as possible after WOD's like Grace, or a PR clean and jerk. Right before I collapse and suffer on the ground for 5min.
I gotta say that the Kirk family unit killed Grace yesterday! Both under 5 minutes and both amazing to watch power through it. Kudos! And go Karen!!!
