A Man Must Constantly Exceed His Level

人必须不断超越极限

Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We'd run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile (Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a-half minutes per mile).

布鲁斯每天都要叫我一起跑三英里(编注:约4.8公里),跑得真的很快。我俩用二十一二分钟就能跑完全程,相当于不到八分钟就能跑一英里(编注:1968年李小龙自己跑的时候,只用六分半钟就能跑完一英里)。

So this morning he said to me, "We're going to go five." I said, "Bruce,I can't go five. I'm a helluva lot older than you are, and I can't do five." He said, "When we get to three, we'll shift gears and it's only two more and you'll do it."

这天早上,他对我说:“咱们要开始跑五英里(编注:约八公里)了。”我回答他:“布鲁斯,我不行。我年纪比你大那么多,我可跑不了五英里。”他说:“咱俩跑到三英里处再重新开始计算,这样就只剩下二英里了,你就能跑下来了。”

I said, "Okay, hell, I'll go for it." So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I'm okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I'm tired, my heart's pounding, I can't go any more and so I say to him, "Bruce, if I run any more," - and we're still running - "if I run anymore, I'm liable to have a heart attack and die."

我只好说:“好吧,该死的,那我就跑吧。”于是,跑完三英里后,我们开始跑第四英里。刚开始三四分钟还行,后来我真觉得自己开始筋疲力尽了。我累得不行,心脏怦怦直跳,实在跑不动了。我便对他说,“布鲁斯,我要是再继续跑下去,”——说这话时,我们还在继续向前跑——“要是我再继续跑下去,我很可能就会因心脏病突发而死的。”

He said, "Then die." It made me so mad that I went the full five miles.

他回答道:“那就死吧。”他的话快把我气疯了,我一气之下跑完了这五英里。

Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, "Why did you say that?"

后来去冲澡时,我想就今天的事跟他谈谈。我就问他:“你为什么要那样说?”

He said, "Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it'll spread over into the rest of your life. It'll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level."

他说:“因为你的确有可能死掉。说真的,对于力所能及之事,如果你总是给自己设定种种限制,不论是身体上的还是其他方面的,这种限制就会伴随你度过余生。这种设限的习惯会延伸到你的工作、品行以及整个人生中去。人生本无‘限制’之说。虽会经历平原期,但你不能裹足不前,必须超越极限。如果这样做真能将你置于死地,那就随它去吧。人必须不断超越极限。”
