Today we look at the little decisions in training and racing that will take you to the next level. Understanding simple things like, the more fatigue you have, the longer the warm up, and today’s success could be as simple as you getting out to move your body. We look into race mentality from the beginning of the swim until the end of the race, and why your tank should be full AFTER you get out of the water. We remind you that if you didn’t swim or bike enough in training, don’t act like you did in the race. We look at 2nd, 3rd, and 4th winds and how to find them. We talk about the power of incremental gains and why it’s so important to control and understand your effort. Race practice can happen in every single training session if you know what to look for and today we define how you should feel at the end and what’s the proper understanding of Emptying the Tank.
