Rising Phoenix - Netflix

Has anyone watched this yet? Great inspiration about the highs and lows faced by Para-Olympians and their fight to gain acceptance in the wider community.
I have no excuse to not train. I have 2 arms and 2 legs, I should be grateful that I can pursue life without hindrance.


hadn’t heard of it but am now interested to check it out. thx

Years ago when I used to race, every so often I’d start a ride and feel like crap mentally and/or physically. My warm-up route took me past the house of a quadriplegic. Every day someone rolled him out onto the driveway and left him there, I’m assuming to get sun & fresh air. Every time I passed him, my disposition & bike ride improved 100%.

Almost always, we are in a much better place than we believe.

p.s. - haven’t watched the movie.


I watched this a couple weeks ago while doing a tempo ride on the trainer- highly recommend. It was great on-the-bike entertainment. Very inspiring and had lots of cool history about the Paralympics as well. I loved it

So good! Got me so fired up during a sweetspot workout it nearly turned into v02 max work :sweat_smile:

For real though what these people go through puts a lot in perspective.
