Think about what it takes to put together a PR . . . solid training, great mindset, optimal weather, perfect nutrition, incredible effort, and impeccable execution. Is that realistic for every race? Today, we get into a great discussion of how "just enough" in all those areas can come together, and while it may not mean a PR, it COULD mean a great performance. And a great performance should always be the goal.

Imagine coaching 40 athletes that are racing triathlon on the same weekend. Today, Coach Robbie takes us through a play by play of how he tracks athletes and retains his sanity with all the notifications. The highs, the lows, the stresses, the rewards. He also shares his "secrets" as a coach, which usually boil down to building relationships and trust. 

  • Coaching the Week of race preparation
  • Race outlines
  • An Athlete’s Happiness is #1
  • Handling different skill levels and ages
  • Most stressful part of a race weekend
  • Dealing with sickness and stress
  • The journey and the obstacles
  • Endless Variables to Consider
  • Big race, fun race, set up
  • Just finish, podium, or win?
  • Expectations or Future Resentments? 
  • Or, Expectations as Restraints?
  • Why Athletes Never Let a Coach Down
