"What Can You Do with 30 Seconds?"

30 seconds.  It's not a long time.  Not even a minute, as a matter of fact.  But when you've been on a bike for 45 minutes, sweat is dripping from your entire body, and your heart is pumping at 90% of is maximum rate - 30 seconds can feel like an eternity.

Your legs are aching.  Your heart is racing. Everything inside of you is telling you that you cannot keep going. Wait. You know this song.  It's almost over.  You could easily let go right now.  What do the last few second matter anyway? You'll just slow down a little....Then you hear Hyam yell: 

"30 more seconds - what can you do with it?" 

At that moment you have a choice.  You could slow down, lighten your load, get a little relief.  It's only 30 seconds, right? Or you could dig down deep, find that strength and power you didn't even know you had.  It's only 30 seconds, right?

I used to give up on those last 30 seconds. Somewhere along the way, however, I finally got Hyam's message. Those 30 seconds are my chance not just to take my workout to the next level - but to take my life to the next level.  And you know what? I'm not going to waste them.

What are you going to do with your 30 seconds?
