"We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work."

I don’t want my life to be a series of “I shouldn’t have eaten that.”

Hell no.

If it tasted good, if I enjoyed it, that’s all that matters.

I’m not a slave to food.

"I thought I was broken and I thought I was used up and I thought I had nothing left to give. I’d given everything and I didn’t really know what was left. But there’s a part of us that is unbreakable. You always find it again."

"Many people shy away from hills. They make it easy on themselves, but that limits their improvement. The more you repeat something, the stronger you get."

I’ve been very consistent with my ice baths (sitting in one now), rolling, and stretching lately because there’s no more fucking around. Also very good food and I’m having a whey protein powder smoothie after even though I think they’re fricking gross.

2:08 does not impress me anymore and therefore I am going to be so much stronger than that this season. I took six seconds off my 1000 this winter so I’m hoping at least 2 or 3 off my 800. WE’LL SEE.
