Today, I failed. It was the first time, but I don't think it will be the last. It's impossible to challenge yourself if you're afraid to fail.
And, today, I challenged myself. I pushed myself to use a heavier weight than I ever have. I made it through 10 of the 12 reps that I was supposed to do in the set...and then it happened.
I couldn't do one more row.
But, I'm so proud! I never would have known that I could do 10 reps at that weight if I hadn't TRIED!
Failure isn't a bad thing! It means you dared to try! To step outside of your comfort zone! To be bold! To be different!
