DRS STRONG WEEK 90: WHAT IS A MENTAL VICTORY?
Written by Rosario Rios Aguilar on 13 June 2016.
“I AM NOT A VICTIM. NO MATTER WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH, I’M STILL HERE.
I HAVE A HISTORY OF VICTORY.”
The focus of this week is MENTAL VICTORY! We will start the week with a fun grueling grinder kind of workout. This is to put you out of your comfort zone not just physically but mentally. The stimulus is meant to be heavy and long. If your technique allows, go heavier than what you think and us coaches will help you pick the right weight. Like I mentioned before, training helps you shape your body but your mind as well. The feeling after those kind of workouts should not be of “welll that sucked”. PERHAPS it did suck but you embrace the suck and you have acquired a mental victory by knowing that you did it and never done it before.
WHAT IS A MENTAL VICTORY:
A mental victory is when you think you can’t do it but you do and you might not realize how at the moment. But once you have a moment to reflect then you know ” wow, I freaking did it! as hard as it was I did it” The main thing to take away from that experience is that your mind now has a different limit capacity and you are building the work capacity not just of your physical ability but your mental strength as well.
YOU DID IT and YOU DID IT THE BEST YOU COULD, WAKE UP THE NEXT DAY AND FEEL LIKE A CHAMP BECAUSE YOU DID IT!!
Continue to accumulate mental victories because thats how you get strong! by chipping away and knowing that you are better than what you were yesterday, by not quitting and by moving through a hard time!
A mental victory shapes your mind for what is next 🙂
This blog inspires me as I take my new journey of life: BIG 30!!!! haha!! Ok no serious business, it inspires me to know that every single person at DRS come in and they are ready for work and be stimulated ( even if they don’t know it haha) and we hope to continue to do that for everyone. As I embark in my coaching journey for ASICS BEAT THE SUN in EUROPE, I will keep in touch with vlogs and adventures and I know that I have the greatest DRS Team back at home 🙂 and Coach Jenna is probably going to be getting really good at beating me at the workouts haha! ( facetime meeeee haha)
