Everything in life has a beginning and an end correct? We all know that they do. But the one thing that most people don’t consider is the ” middle of the road.” In our fitness path, the middle is usually the darkest, and the most difficult to negotiate. We know all of the cliché’s:” It is always darkest before the light, every cloud has a silver lining” blah blah blah. The beginning of the journey is all about enthusiasm and belief. That is the initial fuel.
In the beginning, the end is also clear. There is cause and effect, before and after, larvae to butterfly. The transitional portion, the “becoming” is the hardest thing to visualize. That is the part that I would like to speak about. The middle part is where the “hard” happens. In the middle is where the “undefined” lives. The middle is where it is “too cold to workout.” The middle is where the muscle soreness hides.
I am NOT saying this to discourage you, far from it. I just want you to be able to embrace this middle. When you learn to swim, you know you are going to get water up your nose. Boxers know they are going to get punched in the face. Football players are going to get tackled really hard. With Chuan Fit, you will be sore, your body will change its composition without any type of rhythm that you can predict. But the beauty is also in the middle. It is where you learn how cool you are, how strong you are, how determined you are. The middle of the road is just the part that turns the soft into hard. Look the hard in the face and keep moving. I believe in you!
