Many athletes have motivational phrases e.g. Lance Armstrong - Pain is Temporary, Quitting is forever.

What's yours?

'HTFU' (some bullying troll or other.)

Have said it to myself many times and it never fails.

"Pain is just the sensation of weakness leaving the body"...... Which was my old PE teachers favourite.

Either that or "Run you fat B**tard. RUN" which is another personal favourite.

Read these on RW US forum on a similar thread to this and they stuck.

Suck it up buttercup ( which I repeat over and over if I get to a tough bit)

Or

If I don't feel like going out at all.

One day you will not be able to do this, today is  not that day.

No it doesn't. 'Mo ichi do' does mean one more time but not 'like you mean it.'

Yes.

A real cobra.

Ok Mo Ichi do means one more time, you skinny twat and the look on his face says "like you mean it". Perhaps it's all about the context in which the phrase is said? It's a direct quote.

I've got that as my 'Desktop'

Mine are;

'It's Easier by Bike' (bar on the 'Harriers verses Cyclists' course)

'Finish & The Jaffa Cakes Are All Mine!!"

Why Can't We All Stop Running NOW"

I like that one...

Have got a US Marines top with the "Pain is just weakness leaving the body..." motto on it.

I like the Roger Bannister one (although it's not a phrase per se)...

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle--when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Just do it - Nike.

 If that doesn't work - JFDI
