U.S. Navy Seal David Goggins: "No Limits"

May 19, 2019



I started doing this triathlons in endurance sports ultra runs just to test my soul to see them about to see in 150 mile race at Mile 75 when I feel really bad that's when you know that's the only time you can find out what the human body is all about what you're made of to find out limits to myself limits to the human soul and every day I'm trying to see if I have limits I run anywhere from 125 150 in a week so I'll try and put about 400 miles a month usually every day I wake up at 3 o'clock in the morning and I run anywhere from 10 to 15 miles in the morning and then I live about 25 miles from work so I get my bicycle commute into work do a normal work day that lunch time around noon I'll run again anywhere from 5 to 8 miles whatever maybe come back work and around 5:30 I'll ride back home 25 miles on my bike if I'm feeling good and I'm gonna get more miles I'll get off the bike and do like a short 3 or 4 or 5 mile run that's my everyday life so I don't just train like an hour or so I train until something is uncomfortable and then national you know who you are the only easy day was yesterday it just never ends I mean I've done some races where you're on a one-mile track and you're running for 48 hours straight so imagine running forty-eight hours running my mile track it's not like you're sleeping you're you're running for 48 hours semi miles you can get one talked about mine torture my life doesn't have a finish line so when I cross the finish line of the Iron Man doesn't matter because I know that you know two or three weeks from now I'll be doing something else that when I bite through more pain I believe you know everything I try to do is kind of define by excellence but I don't think I ever reach excellence myself because I have my standards of my life a really high so I don't ever reach it but I try to every day you have to be a good individual first before you can be a good team player I know for a fact how bad hell dig it I went through a couple times it's probably most brute like brutal military training anybody go through so everybody my left and everybody my right they've been through this so I know mentally you know these individuals are extremely hard and when stuff gets bad and you know in any situation I know these guys have my back I've done a lot of things I thought were impossible nothing's impossible anymore David Gardens the United States Navy

    I dont care if you agree with war. I dont care if you think the US doesnt belong in the countries we occupy. These guys deserve respect. And im not just talking about the Navy. Im talking about the Marines, the Army, the Air Force. All services start with the same 2 letters… U. S.

    The idea is that if you can train the body to ignore pain and torture, you can fight use your fighting instincts to accomplish the mission and save your friends' lives… these are extraordinary guys.
