I know I am only eleven years late to the game but I just finally read Lance Armstrong’s book, “It’s Not About the Bike.” It took me forever to read it because I haven’t really agreed with some of his life choices but I wanted to know his story and a little more about cycling so I gave it a chance.
Please tell me your nose get’s sunburned way more than anything else too…..
I absolutely LOVED this book. I took so much from each chapter whether it was about fighting the battle of cancer, endurance, relationships, training, and fighting for what you want.
I have been reading it on the elliptical or spin bike and there are so many sections that helped me to push harder and go fasteer;)
I am not going to lie…..the whole injurieS thing the last 6 months really put a damper on my LONG-TERM RUNNING GOALS and I kind of lost a little motivation to get back there.
Um, there was NO way I could have kept that same attitude after reading this book. Lance came back from his DEATHBED. His inner-drive is incredible and unstoppable.
I love one-liners because they are something that my brain can actually remember when I am on mile 22 of a marathon or on my last set of overhead presses (please tell me those kill you too) and can use to keep GOING.
Not only are these fitness quotes from the book but LIFE quotes, and that is why I love them so much!
“Make EVERY OBSTACLE an OPPORTUNITY!!!!”
“Make EVERY NEGATIVE into a POSITIVE!!!”
“We have two options, give up or fight like hell.”
What is your favorite ONE-LINER that you use when the going get’s tough.
-Pain is temporary, quitting is forever.
What was YOUR WORKOUT!?!?!
-30 minutes elliptical intervals and PUMP….loved it because they made it HARDER today and there was new music!
Any motivational book suggestions? I need another…I am hooked:)
