During these strange times, some folks are struggling with loss of races, camps, group workouts and camaraderie.
Here are a few things you can do to address the loss.
Place yourself two years into the future when things are different. You are two years wiser, with two years more experience.
Now look back on the you here today. What do you tell yourself, the self here today, from the you two years into the future? Do you have advice, words of encouragement, some wisdom to impart? Do that now.
Bring a Resource.
To add even more to the advice from the future, add in another person to join you two years into the future. This could be a real person, someone from your past, maybe even a fictitious character, but someone who you respect and admire. You and that person are now looking back on the you here today.
What would they both tell you from the future to help you navigate these strange times?
Sit with their advice for a bit, then select the choicest bits of their advice, and put those bits into practice, right here, right today.

Mental Skills Performance Coach Will Murray often hears triathletes saying that the sport is at least 50% mental and 50% physical, but I’ve come to notice that they spend very little (if any) time doing mental training. Fortunately, it’s easy and fast to train-up your mind to help you achieve your triathlon goals. I’ve been lucky enough to bring these mental conditioning techniques to first-time athletes and Olympians, kids and seniors, triathletes who want to finish the race and those who are gunning to win.
