The triathlon culture has for the longest time put the 4:00am workout on a pedestal.
What if for the health of our sport and the health of athletes in our sport we put sleep on a pedestal?
How do we get past the stress of feeling like we have to perform perfectly?
Trust the process. Keep in mind that one workout will not make or break you.
Go with your gut. Whatever your body or mind may be saying, be sure you listen.
Cheer up. Take a deep breath, think about how grateful you are to be able to do what you do, then get it done with a smile.
"Where focus goes, energy flows." - Tony Robbins
What if in order to have a good workout all you had to do was tell yourself, "This is going to be a good workout."
