Ironman Texas Training Camp

Special thanks goes out to the coaches at Outrival Racing in The Woodlands, TX for having me out for a clinic on the mental aspects of preparing for and completing the 140.6 distance. An attentive and fit audience from all over the state of Texas participated and asked great questions during their "break" in between a long training run and open-water swim session.

Some highlighted topics of the day:

1. Self-Talk-including some of my own "semi-pearls of wisdom"! 
2. Race Management: and how to race in the moment within your plan.
3. Realistic positivism-focus on what's going well, or at times just moving.
4.Confidence in training and on race day.

 It was a fun hour adjacent to 5/18's race day start at Northshore Park. Photos are courtesy of Corey Oliver. *
Talking mental toughness, more than likely...

"Classwork" for the campers!

Wishing everyone a positive, safe event. Remember to believe in yourself and focus on the task at hand!
