Stay in Your Lane: This is Where You Were Called and Created to Be

As a professional runner in track and field, Angela Davis knows a thing or two about staying in her own lane. In this workout, which is part of her 21 Days of Motivation and Movement series, Angela coaches us on the craft of staying in our own lane. There is more power to it than we even realize.

When Angela would take the starting line as a runner on the U.S. track-and-field team, she never looked to her right or looked to her left. She was never worried about what was going on in other lanes or what other competitors were doing. Instead, she focused on staying in her lane and remained authentic to herself and to her path. That lane is where she was called and created to be.

As a young girl growing up in Florida, Angela's family had trees in the backyard of their home. When she would go outside to play, she would pretend that those trees were like people, and she would run around and around, weaving through them. This trained her to concentrate on staying in her own lane, remaining on her path, and focusing on the finish line.

With a long résumé that includes making it to the Olympic Trials as a semifinalist and member of the World Championship team, people often ask Angela, "How do you do it all?" Her answer? "I stay in my lane."

This workout will show you how to do a PLANK WITH KNEE DRIVE, driving your knee to your elbow. Always remember in a plank to have your shoulders, elbows and wrists in one straight line, keeping your tailbone tucked while driving that knee to your elbow. The one-minute workout begins when the clock starts.

As you move here, focus on your own journey and on your own path. Keep your eyes on the finish line.
