**“I attribute my success to this – I never gave, or took, any excuse.” – Florence Nightingale**
Jocko Willink, a well-known former Navy SEAL, speaks to what is known as “Extreme Ownership”. Precisely as the words imply, it’s the action of turning inward at every obstacle.
The terrifying thing about excuses, is that it blinds us to our next move. If we excuse, or justify, we at a subconscious level tell ourselves that this is “out of my control”. That this was a fluke, or a chance event, and there’s nothing I could do differently next time. We can see the danger in that.
On the flip side, “Extreme Ownership” is not about beating ourselves up or for throwing pity parties. It’s purely, so we can train ourselves to open our vision on where to go next. To see the gain. If we don’t allow ourselves to make excuses, we ask the question – “What can I do differently next time?”
Excuses are contagious. As we feel the temptation come today, pause in the moment. Is there anything I could do differently next time?
# “Goat Day"
We're going to flush out some of the muscle soreness acquired in the last couple of training days tomorrow. Thursday will be "GOAT Day" (working on weaknesses) so please approach the next two days at a low intensity to save energy and prepare for the Open WOD on Friday!

From the New York Times:
"Eat Less Red Meat, Scientists Said. Now Some Believe That Was Bad Advice.
The evidence is too weak to justify telling individuals to eat less beef and pork, according to new research. The findings “erode public trust,” critics said.
Public health officials for years have urged Americans to limit consumption of red meat and processed meats because of concerns that these foods are linked to heart disease, cancer and other ills.
But on Monday, in a remarkable turnabout, an international collaboration of researchers produced a series of analyses concluding that the advice, a bedrock of almost all dietary guidelines, is not backed by good scientific evidence.
If there are health benefits from eating less beef and pork,...more
