Your heart is pumping, your legs are burning, and you’re dripping enough sweat to put out a small forest fire.

You are suffering.

When it comes to athletic endeavors, especially endurance sports, your ability to suffer can mean the difference between a good race and a great race. When you’ve taken care of the other components that can contribute to pain – hydration, nutrition, fitness, training, warm-up...what’s left?

Your mindset. It plays a huge part in your ability to tolerate pain.

If you’ve ever gotten to the end of your race and wondered if you really gave it everything you could, this webinar is for you. How do you really dig deep and go harder than you ever thought possible?

Mental Skills Training expert and author of the book On Top of Your Game: Mental Skills to Maximize Your Athletic Performance, Carrie Cheadle joins us for this webinar to talk about the psychological component of suffering. Carrie will give you the tools you need to get to the finish line knowing you gave it all you had to give that day.
