Great Athletes Learn to Break the 15 Minute Barrier: Great athletes know they do not have to feel like practicing. Sometimes you just need to practice first and feeling will come later. The key is to get your body in motion and the right emotions will follow. Once your start moving, you can break the negative energy holding your back. It takes about 15 minutes to get the right juices flowing. Start your warm-up routine and start training. Do not let negative feeling stop you from training. Just start, do not stop and you'll be glad you did.
