How do we absolutely know when we’re ready to race? Today, we look at how athletes produce non-objective expectations and why that can build unwelcome anxiety. We tend to want concrete answers, but that’s just not possible. At some point we just have to do it. This goes with many things in life beyond racing. We get into rewiring pathways to create more confidence and reduce doubt. We look at small decisions along the way in training that build confidence. We also talk about practicing getting over the little humps and how small decisions create positive momentum.

Topics:

  • It’s your journey
  • How do you know you’re ready?
  • Different stages of readiness 
  • Am I ready to execute this race?
  • Execute your best race best on your fitness 
  • Confidence in feel and pacing
  • Dependence on concrete answers
  • I want to KNOW I can finish before I start
  • Anxiety 
  • Nothing is guaranteed 
  • Sometimes the best races are surprises 
  • Chin up more than chin down 
  • Uncertainty, anxiety, depression
  • How do we know what we want?
  • Overcompensating 
  • Confidence vs. Bravado 
  • Humility in confidence 
  • Small decisions that build your belief 
  • Practice getting over the little humps
  • Don’t listen to all your thoughts, just acknowledge them
  • Small decisions create momentum
  • Let the body do what it is capable of
