Do you know that feeling you get when you are exercising and your legs are burning, your heart is pounding so hard it’s threatening to jump out of your chest and you can feel the blood throbbing through your brain. It’s painful to draw in breath. You are so exhausted you don’t think you can do any more, but you push yourself a little further. Then a little further more. You feel like you are about to cark it and then, suddenly, you no longer feel any pain, your breathing slows, you go a little faster, your legs seem lighter, your vision clearer. You are focused. Nothing can distract you. You’ve broken THROUGH the pain Barrier. You could go for miles… You’re in the ZONE….
Man I LOVE that feeling.
