Train your brain!
Working on a positive mindset can take our athletics to the next level. One of the best places to start is our own narrative in our minds about who we are as people and athletes. That negative voice that says "I'm failing. I am getting slower. This is so hard. I'm never going to achieve my goals. Why do I do this?" affects your performance, your mood, and your interactions with others. When you notice your inner voice saying these types of things, look for the positive and try to change it around. Control your thoughts and be in charge of your narrative. "I GET to do this. I'm working hard to be stronger, fitter, faster. Work and consistency bring change. Trust in the training."
You don't have to be unreasonably optimistic, but finding a hopeful and encouraging mindset can change a training session and even your daily outlook on life.
