How do we know the difference between discomfort and pain? Are you willing to allow yourself to fail trying to find out? Today, it's all about managing pain and understanding your threshold. How inflammation affects your threshold. Defining pain as effort and rewiring your self preservation system. What distance are you wired for?

Sometimes you sit down with a friend to have an in-depth, meaningful conversation, and it's HARD. But your connection with that person will be so much deeper than it is with someone else. That's the same kind of conversation you can have with your body." --Coach Robbie 

Topics:

  • Managing pain
  • What’s your pain threshold?
  • Allowing yourself to fail
  • When it’s a good idea to try and “blow up”
  • “I think I could have pushed it a little more”
  • What’s the best distance for you based on your life?
  • Are you wired more for long or shorter races?
  • Finding the appropriate level of uncomfortable 
  • longer intervals and fast finishes 
  • Finding a way during long training weeks
  • Inflammation and pain . . . how it oddly helps
  • Is more pain the better?
  • Does maturity affect your pain threshold?
  • Sometimes open your discomfort gateway
  • Finding a way to reach uncomfortable comfort
  • Talking yourself into pain
  • We don’t like how it feels, but it might be Okay
  • Go INTO the pain 
  • Pushing Uphills vs Pushing Downhills
  • What is pain?
  • Dealing with Ego in Pain
  • Defining pain as effort
  • Find opportunities to push just a little more
  • Rewiring the self preservation system 
  • Racing vs. Participating
  • Just because you don’t like it, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t or it’s wrong
  • We can accomplish great things if we can get out of our own way

We truly believe going into races with confidence matters. Today we talk about how to make the right choices along the way and build confidence will minimizing the impact of your weaknesses. Racing, training, and living with confidence means you're relaxed, and being relaxed translates into better performance.  

Topics:  

Confront Fears - innate alarm system - fear’s only goal is to protect you, so it doesn’t notice when it’s keeping out something good. Anxiety comes from a lack of practice. Most compelling fear is what You Don’t Know. Reprogram by confronting fears. Push yourself out of the comfort zone. Get familiar with things you don’t know

Own Your Strengths - Negative comments outweigh positive ones. Memory takes longer to store good things than bad things. Instinctively drawn to negativity. You’re you’re own worst enemy. We dwell on weaknesses. Commit a little extra time to focus on your strengths. 

Set Attainable Goals - Step by step goal setting to find something we can be proud of. Develop ourselves emotionally using lists. Daily or weekly boxes to check give progress a physical shape. Seeing progress keeps pushing us. Rack up achievement after achievement. Think of each project as a goal. 

Help Someone - Altruism- Donate and volunteer. Give me a sense of purpose and positivity. Stimulates a rush of oxytocin. 

Separate Your Weaknesses - Learn to Truly accept criticism. Separate weaknesses into things you can change and things you can’t. 

Stop Comparing - Destructive habit. Beautiful people and amazing lifestyles. You’ll never be them. You’ll only be you. 

Look Confident - Modify appearance and body language.
