We only get ONE SHOT at life and.......
I remember thinking about this during the Beijing Olympics but it it nonetheless relevant at any time
What did Olympians do when their race was run and the curtain fell on technically the most advanced games ever.
Hmmm....some would hav taken a break and then continued with their training program. Some would have re set or set new 4 year goals and some...would haven give up the sport they were so talented at and spent time mending a broken heart.
It is so sad to think of, say a hammer thrower who one step away from glory throws the hammer into the cage on his last throw.
Or in the case of our own Nhlapo a talented young BMX rider one fall and that was end for him.. Years of intense training with no social life gone.
Probably some let loose and went on a year long party...the release from training just too much to resist.
We...normal mortals need to guard against that let down or anticlimax of reaching our goals. That is why so many people do not sustain...me included, the condition attained whilst doing a body for life challenge.
So that is why we need to work on making health and fitness a lifestyle as Adam Waters has done and not a just a competition. There is no end in site with the competition of life, we should embrace the life we have and be the best we can possibly be.
We only have one shot.
