Stay Focused

Keep up your consistency

You are all doing so well, you are over half way and the end goal is in sight.
 

For those of you doing the "Return" programme, your runs are getting longer and we know they may be a bit scary, remind yourself of what you have done to be successful up to this point in time.

Allow yourself to trust your ability and work within levels that make you successful. 
 

You are all doing so well, keep it up as we work through to the end.

Education

How do you measure yourself?

The way we measure ourselves can have a massive influence on the way we perform. A lot of people create unrealistic measurements that lead them to feeling unsuccessful which often leads to them stopping. For this week's education we share an audio podcast that Coach Bevan put together about this topic. 

The show runs for around 60mins, the key content starts around 5mins into the show"

Inspiration

Paula Newby Frazier is arguably the greatest female athlete of all time. In 1995 she was on her way to winning her 8th world championship when she hit the wall. This clip shows that some of the toughest athletes have to go through the biggest battles just to finish.
