Ch IV - Me & My Indomitable Will

You feel it. It hurts.
Your breathing starts to get shallow so you force your lungs to work harder. Breathe deeper. You hear sound then you don't. You've only experienced a silence like this a handful of times and it's beautiful. You chase it every time you work out. To push your limits so far that focus takes over, removes unnecessary stimuli, and the limit disappears.
Finally, you've created the opportunity, again, to remove another limit from your body & mind. Everything is telling you to stop. Every ounce of sweat is telling you this is enough. It's so hard to ignore. Sometimes you don't. Sometimes you can't.

Not today.

You couldn't hold you back.

You were too weak.

Too strong.
