I've spent the last three days itching to work out, but forcing sore joints and tired muscles to heal instead. It makes one feel lazy to rest sometimes, I know that is how it makes me feel. I can't help but think that while I rest someone somewhere else trains, and if I were to meet them in a contest of arms or will someday, it will be the one who trained harder, through the most harrowing school which will prevail. You've got to persevere mentally as well as physically in this life. Trials and trivialities will abound, but I must stay focused.
I read an article today about a fellow Marine, who fights for the WEC. His name is Brian Stann and his story is well worth the time to read.
