What track tracks are running through your mind when you train? Do you practice positive self-affirmation, or do you find your constantly second-guessing yourself or telling yourself you’re not good enough to make the next hill or hit a new PR?
The good news is that negative talk tracks can be turned around by developing these three “types” of talk-track personas: the friend, the professor, and the coach. The friend specializes in positive affirmation. The professor specializes in instruction, keeping your form on point. The coach is your own personal drill sergeant – pushing you to reach just beyond your comfort zone in order to grow.
We should have all three of these talk tracks at our disposal at any given moment in training. Leave a comment this week with your favorite talk tracks you use to shut down negativity and carry out a solid training session!
