    I'm the same. I'm terrible at excersize on my own, i find it boring and pointless. But when i played soccer if i played the entire game i'd be pretty damn exhausted by the end, but people cheering on the sidelines and your entire team watching you is pretty good reason to suck it up and play on. Even in training, i'm much better when with a group of people. Makes it more fun.

    I tell you what keeps me going. Lack of imagination.

    Actually, I just give up.

    Thinking about the Rocky IV training montage song and visualising a green fire that's burning inside my forehead will often make me go a couple of steps more.

    I just tell myself to keep going, no matter what and think it will be over soon . Try and picture myself getting my 2nd ...or is it 3rd wind ? Never mind, I lose count anyway..

    I keep going faster and harder for 2 reasons:

    A. I want to beat my last record.

    And

    B. Because I like the pain.

    Alternatively, if I'm training with my brother there is also

    C. Because I don't want my brother to call me a ***** again.

    :D

    A. I forgot all about that. I've got a course 2.5 mile with steep hills at a few spots, and 2 spots for some hanging ab swings 10count forward, 10 count side to side. Anyway, I hate that course and all of the pain its put me through trying to keep beating my best time. You'll be half a mile out and look down, "3 mins left" already dead tired and trying to sprint the rest in. What a frustrating thing to do to yourself over and over.


    B. See A. Also, there are times where I honestly want to tell people, "I'm trying to kill myself" when I'm suiting on some sweats and plastics to go out and run or mow the lawn in texas heat. What other explaination would be more fitting?

    In BJJ, I carry on going cause I know my opponent is just as tired if not more than I am. If they are fresh I just go into zombie mode, brain switches off and all I think about is breathing and going purely by reflex. If ive done enough drilling its A-ok!.

    If I'm doing roadwork or a t the gym, my mp3 player is hugely beneficial. I don't choose specific music to inspire me, I just focus on trying to hear the individual instruments, and exercise diverts me.

    The second thing I do is that I plan my workouts based on what I achieved the last session. I try to plan a workout that is just beyond my ability to complete (predominantly in terms of cardio), and if I manage to complete it, I up the ante for the next session. If I fall short, I log my progress and try to beat it the next time.

    At wrestling and Judo there's no background music, so I can't use that to distract myself, and to be honest, even when there is music (at Shooto) I tend to ignore it unless I'm doing a repetitive drill. Instead I keep a mental running commentary of what's going on. I imagine I'm in my own corner giving myself advice.
