With USA Triathlon Olympic Distance National Championships only a few days away, it got me thinking about mantras. I have a few phrases that run through my mind during the different disciplines of a triathlon while I’m racing…
While swimming: “Just keep swimming” and “Breathe, focus, swim straight”
While biking: “I am focused, I am relaxed” and “I am strong, I am tough”
While running: “Think strong, be strong, finish strong” and “I am tougher than the rest” I also play the song “Another one bites the dust” in my head as I pass people on the run and I always remember Chrissie Wellington’s mantra… “Smile”
So…what’s your mantra?????
