Train to Be Uncomfortable

Yesterday morning at about 5AM, the emergency alert tones on our cellphones went off for a flash flood warning. It was pouring, hard.

It was also time to get up and train.

The first exercise in the program: run 1 mile for time.

I have a rowing machine in my garage. I could have easily subbed out the run for a row.

But why?

I grabbed a towel and some dry socks, set them near the door, put on some crappy shoes, and went into the storm.

For 7:37, I was a little wet and uncomfortable.

A few minutes after that, I was dry, warm, and deadlifting.

Life is not comfortable.

Get ready for it.
