"The Obstacle is the Way" by Ryan
How often do we encounter an injury, or other roadblock to training? I know from experience it's pretty easy to throw your hands up in the air and give up. Having struggled with a series of fairly significant biomechanical problems since late 2003, sometimes I wonder why I even try to keep training.
Many of us training for a few months and hope "it" goes away. Or quit training entirely.
What if we instead rededicated ourselves to doing everything possible to break through that obstacle?
What if every obstacle only made us better in the log run?
Would we even call them obstacles any more?
