Mobility exercises for triathletes (especially aging athletes) are a great way to improve flexibility and optimize physical performance on race day. Not only that, but you’ll notice a difference in day to day life.
On race day, jitters and nerves tend to peak. One way to deal with this is by promising yourself, you’re simply going to do your best.
The “butterfly” feeling is normal and expected. If you don’t get this feeling pre race, it may be time to find a different challenge.
Most athletes have a goal for each race. Whether you have a time goal, want to place in your age group or merely finish the race, we all tend to put a lot of pressure on ourselves.
For your next event, remember this:
It doesn’t matter what part of the triathlon season you’re in, making a list helps make race morning a thoughtless process.
If you think this is silly, most athletes are scattered brained the night before and day of a race. By being prepared and eliminating extra thinking, you will alleviate any extra stress.
From the outside, triathlon can be intimidating, but in reality the sport is the combination of 3 activities most of us did as kids. Below you will learn what it takes to be a triathlete.
Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right
