“Go hard, or go home.” You’ve all heard that one before – in fact, it’s something we talk about here on a regular basis. But going hard, or as hard as you can, every time you work out is a TALL order! It has the potential to drive you right under – and maybe even keep you from showing up at all for a workout. Going hard takes on many different forms for me. Some days, when I’m feeling great – I go hard right out of the gate. Other days, when I’m dragging, or not feeling 100%, I’ll start easy – if it feels good, I up the intensity as I go along, and if not, I just keep it easy. In fact, I’ve set a few personal records on days like this! Try this: Next time you’re not feeling like working out – show up anyway and just start. Go easy – pretend that you’re just going to stay at “warm up pace” through the whole workout. Then check in with how you feel and increase as appropriate!
