True story: Periodically, people ask me about the name of the gym because somehow, they don’t think I look very Mad Dawg-ish. Shocking, I know. The name Mad Dawg came from me giving myself encouragement when I would ride up the “front hill” where I went to school (Fort Lewis College). The hill was short and steep, so at the crucial moment when it would be easier, and probably faster, to walk, I would say to myself “Come on, you’re a Mad Dawg, you got this.” (Technically, I was a “Mad Dog,” but now I have to be a “Mad Dawg” because of, you know, domain name availability, I think you get the point. You are spell and grammar checking your inner dialogue right?) When you are struggling, do you have an alter-ego that you name your inner athlete? Do you have a secret phrase that you tell yourself? Do you count your steps in hexidecimal so you rest a little less than in decimal (another story for another time)? The reality is that you are going to self-talk, so why not make it solution-oriented? (Thanks to Leigh Anne Dennis for posting this)
Someone (we think it’s Terry from the 6AM class) brought some amazing Paleo Brownies to the gym today. If you’re lucky, you can have one… and we have copies of the recipe to share!
