    No matter how well or poor training seems to be going, Race Day is an opportunity to arrange for your mental toughness to shine because, at some point, it's gonna hurt. Today, we go through ways to approach your race mentally and break things into portions you can manage. We also look at how to be fit and fresh from the chin up during taper and why that plays such a huge role on race day. Mental and physical walls. The “make or break” miles of your race. And why going the distance in training isn't as important as you think. Topics: Change in athlete moods with the weather “Oh, THERE'S my fitness.” August is the toughest month Mike broke rule #1 When should you feel fresh for your race? Don't pay attention to outliers Why we need clunker workouts Recover just a little bit Setting Race Power numbers Prisoners of the moment in training Snowballing mistakes Taking a day off in a big build Riding the distance  Worst ride before a race Progressing Too Fast Saving that ONE RIDE for race day Be the best version of the person you are Sneak peek behind the curtain Tapering is all about . . . .  The mental test of race day Pain is part of the game One more mile Bite off little chunks Fit and fresh from the chin up The mental and physical wall difference Make or break miles in an Ironman  --------------- Coach Mike is accepting full-time athletes.

    This is all about being ready for, and handling, those tough moments in your race. Also, what to, and what not to buy before a race.There's a difference between bad workouts and digging a hole, but how do you deal with a tough day in training? Why does it happen? How can you use it to your advantage? Don't let your mindset tell you today sucks way too early. We get into making your race “more comfortable,” the smart last minute decisions, and last minute race purchases.  Topics: It's cooling down and heating up Wisconsin weather Chattanooga forecast It's the busiest time of the year Hair cut talk Chaffing  Race simulation weekends Bad workouts vs. Digging a hole Don't let your mindset tell you today sucks Raising expectations on race day Swimming as a guide to fatigue Bad workouts are just part of it Last minute race purchases Fine tuning fueling Bike fits  Make your race “easier” by adding comfort Don't buy speed Spend money on less stress Invest in comfort  Buying things to make up for lack of training/fitness None of it matters until the last half of the run Practice not quitting You never know what the day is going to bring  --------------- Coach Mike is accepting full-time athletes.

    Training doesn't have to (and shouldn't) leave you feeling demolished. Do you see glimpses of success? Then you're on the right track. We want to break down just enough to recover and come back, not sit in the shop. A deeper look at how accumulating volume prepares you for the race and why you don't have to put in massive bricks and training rides just to prove you can “do it.” We look at smart cycling and gearing, along with running the run and how to pace, hold back, and have something left at the end.  Topics:  Slow to warm up “Worst Ride of My Life” comments Colins Cup  Road bike vs. Tri Bike  It's not equipment, it's the motor Bike on a bike that's comfortable The most un-aero-dymanic thing on your bike Swimming and body position Smart trainer Bike Gearing Start small withe the basics It's how you USE Equipment How to attack an Ironman run  Do you trust that you'll be fresh on race day?

We get into obsession with miles per hour, what it really means to be resilient, and how to no be soft in your training.  We look at time vs. mileage, the ego, and how to learn from bad workouts.

It's about fitting triathlon into your life, not the other way around. We all have so many pressures and distractions, how do we balance it all, especially with a big race on the horizon.

We also look at why people lose motivation in triathlon and the reason is often easy to fix. Do you train with a negative split mentality? Do you take what the course gives you? And we'll tell you why training by MPH is a losing battle.  Topics: BBMC - Blake Becker shout out  The power of holding back in training  Ironman and Pacing Swim Gears How much time do you really save in the swim? When you're married to a pace Practicing restraint Lack of execution is the real problem Why your fitness doesn't show in races Paying the Piper Negative split training Slow starts Taking what the course gives you The goal is to pass at toward the end Roasted on the Stick Winning to pain ratio The mentality of fighting back The power of the pass Math lessons and correlation to pacing Who slows down the least?

    How do we find happiness in the process? A lot of triathletes have “the worst day ever” or “I'm ready for the podium” workouts, but how can we gravitate more towards the middle? How do we leave our brain behind and have fun and satisfaction from doing the work? Today, we dive into training to get better without focusing on the end results and numbers. We're all putting together a puzzle and there's a lot of power in seeing the beauty in a new picture every day, even if it isn't quite finished. Also, when to ramp up load, putting on blinders, and when you should skip workouts.  Topics: Possibility Training 4100 for 41 Endless Pool - Swimming Comparison Finding your nugget How do you engage with what you're doing?
