Guess what? Stuff happens.
As a triathlete, cyclist, or runner, if you swim, bike, and/or run fairly often, you are going to have some bad days here and there. Some that are out of your control and some that you could have prevented. It’s inevitable. Happens to the best in the world, and the newbie alike.
The 3 most important things you can hold on to when coping with a crap day are:
1. You’ll learn more from a bad day than a good day…any day.
2. Not one single day, workout, or race defines you as an athlete.
3. Weakness = opportunity
So this week we plan to make lemonade out of lemons and talk through some tips and strategies that we use with our athletes for dealing with those down right shhhhhh….bad days.
