This idea was inspired by a post made by a member named brettyboy69. I was reading through a topic somewhere back there and I was reading about someone sucking at running the mile and a half. Anyway, this guy brettyboy said "when i was running, it was killing me, but through my head i was thinking 'no way am i failing and getting a civi job again, i came here to join the army, and thats what im going to do.'" Anyway, I thought that was pretty cool. Today when I went running, I was about 3/5 of the way through, and I was just beginning to consider that maybe I had ate one too many pieces of toast this morning. Thinking about stopping for just a second or two etc. Well the idea came into my head "Don't stop you fooking eejit, in about 4 minutes you can stand still for aslong as you want, a little bit of pain for a few minutes you'll be much happier that you didn't stop." Well you know, due to breathing like a beheaded muslim after forgetting to wear her hijab, the thought slipped my mind. It was only when I was lying on my bed about an hour later that I remembered the words. I think in retrospect that it was highly effective as far as motivation goes. Well what I was wondering, I'd like to know about any you people may have, for any situations. From the people like me who are just joining up and use them just for running, or motivating themselves to do a million situps and pressups each day. Even all those 'ald cnuts who hang around here and take the piss out of everyone, I'm sure they'll have some good ones.
