Today we talk about the power of relaxation in swimming, on the bike, and while running… Oh, and skiing too. Mike skied for the first time in 30 years this week and talks about what he learned and how it can be applicable to triathlon training. Tense and anxious athletes never perform their best and we look at the power of slowing down, staying with the program and trusting the progression. We look at how we can dig holes over and over without making progress. We talk about leaving something in the tank physically, but also mentally and why that can derail your best intentions. Get out of your own way and stop making everything harder than it needs to be.
