Mentally Preparing for Races {One Week}

One week until Ironman Lake Placid. Can’t believe it!

As the days are winding down before the big race, mental preparation is becoming more and more important.

For whatever races or events you have coming up in the next few weeks — or months — mental preparation is key.

Visualizing a good race.

Choosing a pre-race playlist that helps your adrenaline to start pumping.

Calming nerves by talking to friends, meditating, watching your favorite show the night before, or writing out a race plan.

Whatever it takes — prepare mentally. That’s half the race.

Be confident in your physical ability and put in the time to make your mind just as strong.

How do you mentally prepare for a big race?
