Level 3 of this three-part training plan focuses on racing well. Advanced techniques build on levels 1 and 2 will give you the mental skills to race to your potential.
Many athletes attribute their mental conditioning to much of their success, yet spend no time actually training their minds. This two-week course will give you specific skills to use your head for more than just a place to put your hat. You will gain skill in managing your inner dialog, using visualization enhancements in ways you never knew and organizing your workouts in your mind to eliminate your dread of high-intensity or difficult workouts. Craig Howie and Will Murray specifically designed this program based on their book The Four Pillars of Triathlon: Vital Mental Conditioning for Endurance Athletes. This is not another philosophical “you ought to” sports psychology approach, but a strategic set of fast, easy and durable techniques that any endurance athlete can learn to use quickly and conveniently to improve training, racing and enjoyment of the sport.
