EVAL­U­ATE THE POS­I­TIVE

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURES -

Af­ter the race is over, take stock of the good things that hap­pened. Like Jeff Sy­monds did in Kona, you may find you learn a lot from races that did not go well: the ben­e­fit of a good train­ing ef­fort, per­sonal best splits, ex­hibit­ing good cop­ing/re­act­ing skills, or sim­ply the pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence of rac­ing.

Rac­ing can be fun on good and bad days. It is hard to have a bad race if you are still hav­ing fun, so main­tain that per­spec­tive, re­lax and per­form your best.

Four-time Xterra world cham­pion Me­lanie Mcquaid has also won a num­ber of 70.3 races to go along with her nu­mer­ous Xterra ti­tles. She lives, trains and coaches in Vic­to­ria.
