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.

Topics:

  • Be dependable to yourself
  • Coach talks about his training struggles
  • Why we don’t always talk about the numbers
  • From Emo to competitive
  • Family transitions and Life Transitions
  • Not obsessing about Races
  • Showing yourself Grace

  • It’s time to wake up
  • Don’t Chase the Wrong Things

 "There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." –Ernest Hemingway

We're big fans of writers and those who master the craft. We also love analogy for learning and have often talked of Steven Pressfield's "War of Art" and "Do the Work" in relation to triathlon. Today, we look at Ernest Hemingway's approach to writing as craft and distill it into lessons for training. Notes pulled from: A Moveable Feast

  • Beating Writer's Block (or being stuck in training): Write the truest sentence that you know. Do what feels pure to your body… hiking, swimming, biking, roller blading. 
    • Much more to life than triathlon
    • All your workouts don’t need to be GREAT
    • Paralyzing Stalemate of Fear
    • Get Back to What You Love
  • Leave some something in the tank - Stop while you’re ahead. Distract yourself with something completely different.
    • Don’t feel drained for the next day
    • There is so much restraint in becoming great
    • You don’t get extra points for digging a hole
    • How to tell you’re getting better when you seem the same
    • The problem with instant results
  • Doing The Work - The story began writing itself…. then I began writing the story. (I see this as the initial optimism for training creates an auto-pilot… but eventually you have to consciously do the work).  “Work could cure almost anything, I believed then, and I believe now.” 
    • Training shouldn’t be separate, it should be part of you
    • Flirting with the disconnect 
    • Tell us about the hardest part of your day

These are few more things, but we didn't get to them. 

  • Read good books. Follow inspiring people.
  • Discuss with people who can teach you things.
  • Don't judge your writing until the next day.
