“Destiny is not a matter of chance, but of choice. Not something to wish for, but to attain.”

– William Jennings Bryan

 Limiters!!!

Most athletes train the way they want to train. By doing so, they se no improvement year by for. However,, athlete who are able to consistently improve season after season ten to train the way they need to train and challenge themselves. AKA… they listen to their Coach. 

It can be difficult of an athlete to focus on the areas that are holding him or her back because most uf us developed our strengths in our favorite training areas. However, when we have a specific training session at practice… you might not show up because it is too hard for you. Too bad, suck it up.  This could be your race limiter. Countless times I have seen athletes not improve because they are stuck in their ways… lets stop it and change it. I will see you at practice.

Anxiety in the Swim!

 

Walking into a swim start, I have seen countless faces of fear on peoples faces, to the point that their goggles start filling up with tears and they start shaking. Suddenly the gun goes off and they are in the water. The start gasping for air and start doing breaststroke during the entire swim.

How to over come this common fear? Countless of times I have take athletes through worst circumstances during training so when race day arrives, there shouldn’t be any doubt on their performance.
