Crushing Iron Triathlon Podcast

Release Date: 06/27/2019

Do you get trapped in loops of negative self-talk? This can be a huge burden to carry when training. Today, we look at ways to manage your training so that you keep good energy and build a pattern of confidence. We get rid of "pass or fail" workouts and show how each training session (no matter how small) can be translated into mental preparation for a race. Finish strong, happy, and healthy.
