How to approach training to be successful

Last week, I recieved Mark Allen’s newsletter and Loren Fogleman LinkedIn email which they discuss on a successful approach to training and racing.

You can read Loren’s “5 Habits of World Class Athletes” at: http://expertsportsperformance.com/5-habits-world-class-athletes/?goback=%2Egde_54496_member_5808530097707180033#ixzz2l5fGTH9z. Loren’s 5 Habits: 1. Feedback; 2. Repetition; 3. Approach; 4. Motivation; 5. Effort.

You can read Mark’s “How to Gain Ironman Endurance” at: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/brant-secunda-and-mark-allen/endurance-ironman_b_2528181.html?utm_source=Fit+Soul+Fit+Body+Newsletter&utm_campaign=1786722570-Newsletter11_18_2013&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ce41c9570b-1786722570-409352293. Mark’s 6 lessons that helped him and to be successful: 1. Empty your mind; 2. Replace fear with joy; 3. Slow down to get faster; 4. See power in repetition; 5. Strive to be steady; 6. Shake hands with Impossible.

Using their approach to your training you will see results as I did this year. Participating in endurance events is 50% physical and 50% is psychological. Both Loren and Mark discuss this in their articles but you need to practice both in your training.
