#455 – Feeling Undertrained?
Play • 57 min

The last year has put us in “cancelled” mode, but now we’re seeing races sneak up on us and a lot of athletes feel “behind.” How do you build confidence when the clock is ticking? Today, we look at how to get the most out of what may seem like limited time. We also talk about smart training strategy for all races. What you should focus on as strengths, weaknesses, and how use the energy of race day. We also look at how Type A athletes can benefit from being more Type B and vice versa. 

Topics:

  • How do we build race confidence if we feel undertrained?
  • We’re feeling good about upcoming races
  • Coffee submissions - Send in your local coffee 
  • February . . .

  • It’s time to get over things

  • Focus on your confidence
  • Countdown clocks are exhausting 
  • When a Bad Week is a Good Week
  • When Type A athletes need to be more Type B and vice versa
  • What’s your first thought when you see 8 weeks until Race Day?
  • “Load me up coach”
  • How life chips away at you
  • Are you obsessed with making up missed workouts? 
  • How to stop worrying about what you haven’t done
  • Race Day Energy - Do you harness it or let it take you out of yourself?
  • Stress is different for everyone 
  • Do what you can, when you can
  • You Can’t Play Catch Up to Race Day
