“Successful people aren’t born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don’t like to do. The successful people don’t always like these things themselves; they just get on and do them.”

I can probably guess that many of you, like myself will look at this wod and immediately want to write it off. Not for fear of the moderately heavy clean and jerks, but rather by the mile run to start, half mile sandwiched in the middle, followed by yet another mile! For many, running is something heavily avoided, especially longer distances within a workout. I want to encourage you to scroll back and look at this workout again. Think to yourself of ways in which you can destrominate it rather than let it get the best of you. And if you start the workout, well then damn well finish the whole thing as you intended to. For example, it would be much easier to shorten that last mile run into 400 m because “I felt way to tired after 42 heavy clean and jerks.” Why in the world would you let a workout defeat you like that?! Finish it exactly as you intended when you started it. Go on, get after it because secretly deep down you know you want to!
