"How true it is that we really appreciate something only once we no longer have it. The opportunity and ability to train hard, to be able to pour in the effort to work your body to its limit, is a joy, a blessing and a privilege. Think it through. To have a body in sufficient condition for it to be able to be pushed to its limit, time after time, and to keep coming back for more, is a wonder. Make the most of it. Revel in it. It won't last forever, though it can last a darned sight longer than many would have you believe. Don't believe the myth that getting old means the cessation of hard training. A modification of training, yes, but the continued putting in of effort and dedication until you expire."
