Who knew Hulk Hogan had the secret to life?

Train, Say Your Prayers and Eat Your Vitamins. I’ve heard that, oh, about a thousand times. The only other phrase that competes with this one is Bob Barkers’ “help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.” Bob’s saying doesn’t necessarily apply to this post, but I’m sure it will in a future post

I have a belief that ANYONE can complete an ironman competition with the right training, the right mental attitude and the right nutrition. If one is lacking (or lagging), then the other two suffer greatly. You could train like a madman, have an extraordinary psychology, but if you eat crappy food, your efforts will be wasted. Just as you could eat the best foods in the world, train like an Olympian, but if your mind is somewhere else, you’ll be lucky to survive. Lastly, you eat right, your mind is in the right place, but you have no idea how to train, how far do you think you’ll get?

Be strong, be focused and be well. These are the real trio that you should strive for. The rest is technique.

Now if I could just learn how to tear my shirt off….
