/, Elite Athlete WOD/“Perseverence”


“Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.”

~Samuel Johnson

Every one starts the race fresh and motivated.  Some that did not prepare themselves physically are the first to fall behind.  Then slowly those that did not prepare themselves mentally are the next to go.  In the end, when the rigors of the race have worn everyone down to their base levels, it only those with the will to persevere in the face of any obstacle that finish strong.

Is strength required?  Of course it is.  The tougher the challenge, the more that is required.  Does it win the day?  Not by itself.  Eventually physical and mental fatigue set in, no matter what the challenge is, and it is then that strength of will separate victor from vanquished.
