A while back I went to a yoga class for the first time in about 6 months. It was the first yoga class organised by my local triathlon club so we started at the beginning. So as yoga goes it wasn’t particularly demanding but it was definitely a good wake-up call for my brain and my body.
I have some athletes that refuse to ever get on a turbo and only ride outside! I have other athletes who are the opposite and I can’t get them outside unless it’s blue skies and 20 degrees. And everyone in between.
Here’s a list of my favourite resources about how to get good at something and how to make the time you spend practising your sport effective. Let me know which is your favourite and how they’ve impacted on your swimming, cycling or running…..and your life.
You’ve trained your legs off for 6 months, feel like you’re on top form and are totally after a personal best. And then…..your race totally sucks and your performance is pants. How do you deal with this and keep enjoying your sport? Or even find the motivation to keep training for the next race.
You know you can finally call yourself an athlete when you get used to talking about puking, peeing, pooing and chafing in embarrassing places! But the one thing we don’t often talk about are periods!
Lots of us triathletes and cyclists like some numbers to tell us how we’re performing – there’s nothing like a bit of hard data right! They can be a great help to keep us on track, help us to train effectively and tell us how fit (or not) we are.
