Anyone that loses 100 lbs and goes on to finish in the top spots of the worlds toughest foot race (Badwater) can be called a true FREAK.
But get this “He says that he hates to swim, hates to bike, hates to run and still does them all on a daily basis—precisely because he hates to.”
Not only is he physically fit – his mind is also wired at a very high level.
Watch as Navy SEAL, David Goggins, talks about “Mental Toughness” and Why it’s not about winning, it’s about NOT quiting. David says, “Everyone comes to a point in their life when they want to quit. But it’s what you do at that moment that determines who you are.”
According to Triathlete Europe.com “Every day, he’s up and running by 3 a.m.
After a 20-mile run, he bikes 20 miles to work. He runs at lunch, if he can.
Then it’s back home (on the bike, of course) to join his wife for weight training in the gym.
He’s in bed no earlier than midnight most nights.”
Check out the book Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet and you can learn more about David and how he trains the mind and body.
There are many life lessons that you can learn from this book and apply them to your training and life.
