It is what you do in the dark, that puts you in the light….

I love it!!!! Under Amour you nailed it!!!

Let me repeat that, “It is what you do the dark, that puts you in the light.”

First off Michael Phelps is “The Man,” talk about a role model for sacrificing to be the best.  We all get to see Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympic Athlete in the history of the games, stand on the podium to receive a Gold Medal while the National Anthem plays in the background.  But what we don’t see is what he does every day for the four years prior to the Games.  He works his ass off.

His peak training looks something like this: he phelpsswims 80,000+ meters a week, which is nearly 50 miles!!  He practices twice a day, or more if he’s training at altitude.  Phelps trains for five-six hours a day, six days a week and then weight trains 2-3 days on top of that.   He eats 12000 calories A DAY and still looks like this.

It is the hard work and preparation you do every day that sets you up to succeed.  Success is not given, it is earned.


I think this quote by Amy Hempel sums it up perfectly:
“There’s no such thing as luck.  Luck is where preparation meets opportunity”

What are you preparing for???
