It’s easy to do things we’re good at, but triathlon weaknesses usually set the race tone. Today we talk about how we’ve been pushing each other to work on the weak links in our game. We also explain how strengths can turn weakness because we “think we got it.” We look at training “trouble signs” and finding ways to enjoy disciples we may not like or neglect. It’s hard to race well when you have a glaring weakness…. Progress, not perfection is the name of the game in triathlon. Roll when it's hot.
