Everything comes at a price, it's up to you to decide what price you're willing to pay.
In my case, it's not even about what I'll get, and wether it's worth it.
It's about hard work, never resting and feeling good about what I achieve.
I set the goal to push myself, not the other way around.
People don't get it, but I take pride in earning it more than having it.
The body strengthens, of course, but my mind is what I train.
I press play, the music starts, and everything else just evaporates.
For a few minutes, it's just me and my thoughts.
My questions. My fears. My doubts.
When I'm done, only the sweat remains.
(And it's pretty impressive to see how much you can sweat by standing still for some 11+ minutes)
