As a Physical Therapist and World Champion Triathlete I often get asked, “How do you train for a Triathlon?”
The answer to this question is that I make sure there is no stone left unturned. The physical, nutritional and mental aspects of training and competing all mesh together and impact the overall outcome.
My athletes are ready when the gun goes off. Training and learning how to compete is a process. I teach my athletes how to trust the process. It is also very important to me that my athletes have confidence in the process and confidence in themselves. This is the mental aspect of training!
My training philosophy is much different than many others. Training must be a part of your life and NOT be your life. My athletes learn how to turn on and turn off the "inner fire" and learn that every workout has a purpose. There are no "junk miles" in my programs.
I also ensure that the training and racing process remains fun and enjoyable. I often have my athletes ask themselves whether they are enjoying training. If the answer is "No" then it is time to change or time to do something else.
