Webinar: Training the Competitor Within: Mental Training for Triathletes
About this Webinar
Presented by David Glover, MSE, MS, CSCS (June 2016)
You’ve finished the swim and the bike. It’s hot, your legs are tired and your body hurts. Now the run begins. What’s going to get you to the finish line and a new PR?
In a study of Olympic athletes, researchers observed that of the three factors of readiness – mental, physical and technical – the only statistically significant predictor of final Olympic ranking was mental readiness.
This recorded presentation by Coach David Glover, MS, CSCS blends research findings with his experiences as he went after a coveted sub-9 hour IRONMAN triathlon finish – and achieved it twice – to give you the mental skills tools you can use to take your performance to the next level.
Topics covered in this webinar include:
- Setting the right kind of goals…and achieving them
- Overcoming almost anything with the power of positive thinking
- Building your self-confidence
- Race day anxiety: managing the storm before the calm
- Fine tuning your mental sharpness on race day
This presentation blends research findings with the practical wisdom of the presenters 30+ years of experience in endurance sports to give you five mental training tools that you can practice with and apply to your own training and racing to take your performance to the next level against your competition…and yourself.
