Today we look at the ways healthy optimism can enhance your training, racing, and life. It’s the little things and they are usually easy to address. Mike talks about his road back from injury and how it’s helped him re-define “feeling good” while training, which he ultimately believes will make him faster. Also, how Coach Robbie has gotten into his best shape in 4 years. When do you push, when should you pull back? Why you should adapt workouts based on your mood. And, the absolutely simplest way to approach your workouts.
