Day 7: Trying Your Hardest?

trying-my-hardestYes, you run.

Sure…you’re getting a few strength days done here and there…

Maybe you’re kinda watching your diet a little…sometimes…

But are you really trying your hardest?

Are you doing everything you can do to reach your goals? Are you hitting each day as hard as you can? Are you making healthy eating choices and putting in the real work when it comes to your running and strength training?

If not…don’t complain about not hitting that goal time you want. Don’t complain about not being able to get through that long run. Don’t complain about not seeing the weight come off.

You might not be the strongest or the fastest…but if you’re trying your hardest, you will reach your goals. Be honest with yourself….are you really giving it your all?

Day 6 exercises: 2 sets of 10 – Arms & Back 

****Click here for how to videos****

  • Push Ups
  • Hammer Curls
  • Monkey Arms
  • Plank – Your Choice (:30 2X)

Remember that Hammer Curls can be just the arm movement as Scott Herman shows us in our how to videos, or you can step it up and try sprinter Tyson Gray’s Swinging Hammer Curls.

2 sets….GETTT ITTT!! 🙂


It’s easy to work hard when you feel good….but do you try your hardest when you don’t feel like it?

This choice is what separates those who reach their goals and those who are disappointed when they fall short.

How hard will you work today?
