Profound? Or situationally appropriate advice?

While huffing and puffing my way thought spinning class today, the instructor made a comment that just stuck with me. We were doing power sprint climbs, which means pretty much you were working in high gear, with high resistance, trying to climb as fast as you could. (And if you were me, you were also sweating and swearing and probably wishing you'd worn better pants so they wouldn't feel like they were slipping off your rear, thereby showing everyone in the world your undies. But I digress.)

So he faced everyone, who was equally huffy-and-puffy and said: "Don't get tired. Get tough."

And I was like.... WOAH! Revelation.

Applicable in this situation? Totally. But is this a command/advice/manta that would be useful elsewhere? I think it could be. Work? Sure. Draining family members? Oui. Life in general? I think so.

So, anyway, I start my new week with a new mantra. Let's see where it goes.

What do you think?
