Podcast 55: Ask the YTs on Santa Rosa 70.3, Ultras, Mantras & Racing Down Under

By in Podcast

The well-trained mind is showing itself strong in this episode as we recap our experiences at Ironman Santa Rosa 70.3. BJ reveals insight into his mind battles on the course and how he trumped his self-sabotaging impulses to race to his potential that day.

Anyone can get the physical fitness, it’s the mental fitness that makes the difference on race day. The power of mindfulness practices on athleticism is not only proving itself in scientific studies but it’s proving itself in the massive rise of athletes who are now meditating and practicing mindfulness in their daily lives. The true beauty lies in the fact that it doesn’t just benefit our sport, it benefits every facet of our lives leaving us to be nothing less than our best. It’s simply too good to pass up! If you want in, we are awake and ready for you.

We also dive into listener questions about 50K to 70.3 training, mantras and race day meditation techniques, nutrition and prepping for an international Ironman. This episode is chock full but if there’s a question you’ve been hoping we’d answer….well, send it in! This is a monthly show that isn’t going anywhere. We’ve been racing triathlon and running events for two decades. We are open books and here to share our wisdom with you.
