On a hilly course I remind myself: You’re light as a feather – Keep it together! Going downhill I remind myself: Push your pace! (I do this in the later part of the run and when I feel like my swim is starting to be too relaxed!) When I’m doubting myself toward the middle of a long run I say: You’re stronger with every step! My silly one on the bike is one of gratefulness: You’re doing it!
What’s some of your mantras or silly things you say to yourself out there training or in a race?
