After a much-noticed social media silence that began shortly after rumors began to swirl that 2017 might be NASCAR driver Danica Patrick’s last season, the all-around athlete was back on her Instagram account on Sept. 28 showing off another skill she’s been attempting to master outside of the track.

Ohhhh how are you ever going to be better at something if you don't practice!!!!!! I can do kipping handstand push ups against the wall for days, deficit handstand push ups, strict handstand push ups…… but freestanding, not as good at. So today I wanted to get 5 in a row. I did….and then fell out. 😜 Ego is what motivates us because it's impatient, the soul has forever and is what gives something integrity and authenticity. See, if we only do things to only get attention or make money or be liked, we will never achieve the happiness we seek. If we do things that we truly love, the ego can help motivate us to achieve soulful fulfillment. ✨ today my soul was happy with 5 reps, and an ego check fall. 😌

“Ohhhh, how are you ever going to be better at something if you don’t practice,” Danica wrote alongside a video of her in the gym. “I can do kipping handstand push ups against the wall for days, deficit handstand push ups, strict handstand push ups … but freestanding, not as good at.

And while she could have stopped there, she utilized the opportunity to speak to her fans about life goals in general.

“Ego is what motivates us because it’s impatient,” she wrote. “The soul has forever, and is what gives something integrity and authenticity. See, if we only do things to only get attention or make money or be liked, we will never achieve the happiness we seek. If we do things that we truly love, the ego can help motivate us to achieve soulful fulfillment. ✨ Today my soul was happy with five reps, and an ego check fall.”
