October 16, 2009, Newsletter Issue #1: Have a Mantra

Tip of the Week

What are your reasons for completing a triathlon? It may be for health and fitness, or it could be that you just want a challenge. At some point in almost every race the going will get tough and you will need to draw mental strength from the reasons you are competing. Inevitably you will ask yourself “why am I doing this?” Your body wants to quit but your mind must stay strong and resist this temptation. Have a realistic but positive attitude about the pain you are experiencing, but don’t give up. For many individuals incorporating a mantra can help. Phrases such as ‘one foot in front of another’ or “just a couple of more miles” allow you to keep pushing yourself when things get difficult. Keep repeating this phrase and do what is necessary to achieve your goals.
