Kids Tri Training Term 4 Wrap

Over the last 8 weeks we have had an eager group of kids gathering at St Ives Showground each week to learn more about triathlon, develop improved skills and technique, get fitter and have fun. We finished at the weekend by competing in the Go-Series triathlon at Manly Dam. This was a great term of training with a great bunch of kids. We look forward to returning to training Term 1, 2021 but not too soon as we also want to enjoy Christmas and the School holidays.

Mantra for 2018

Do you have a mantra for 2018? This is more my mantra for life but will focus on this for 2018.

Nothing great can ever be achieved by taking the easy or soft options. Never take the easy road or path of least resistance. If you want it be prepared to work for it, make sacrifices, be determined and stay focussed on your goal. Don’t let anyone or feeble excuses get in your way. Get out there do the hard yards, make the hard decisions and the achievement and success will follow. It is there for the taking it just requires you to want it!

Runfocus Interval Training

New run interval session starting on 16 January 2012, refer to the runfocus tab for further details. I am excited about the session and hope you will join me.

Do you have what it takes?

What does it take to succeed in Triathlon? to answer this you firstly need to define success, to me this is to achieve your best and this is different for all, some it is to complete a Tri, others a PB or finish an Ironman whilst others want to qualify for certain events or win their chosen events. Yes ability does come into it in determining what is your best and the goals you set, but ability does not limit you from being your best or even being better than those who you have a perceived as having greater ability than you.

Three essential ingredients are required to put you on the path to racing to your best.

  1. Be self driven / motivated and committed to your training.
  2. Have a desire to improve.
  3. Have someone who you are accountable to and communicate with them regularly (this may be a coach!!!!)

Sure this is plug for coaching, if you feel that you have these 3 ingredients but have not put them together yet, have you thought about coaching, a coach can help you blend the key ingredients together and will help you set clear and realistic goals for your season (ie a plan). Dont let another season go by where you have not performed to your best on race day.

“If you are comfortable with your training regime then you should be concerned. You can only make the big gains by being out of your comfort zone.”
