I don’t know about you but I was continuously amazed by what these athletes were able to accomplish. 10,000 meter open water swim, marathon, weightlifting, gymnastics, pinpoint diving and the list goes on and on.
I consider myself very much an amateur athlete and I think I do quite a bit to stay in the shape I am in. We look at these athletes and think that we could never look like they do. This may sound strange but that is probably correct! They train hour upon hour to get stronger and faster because that is what they do for a living. Here is the secret…studies have shown that we don’t have to do nearly that much in order to be healthy and fit.
Point being, don’t compare yourself to an olympic athlete. That is simply not being fair to you. Eat right, exercise and watch those numbers and you should be good.
