Season Reflection

Its that time of year again,  the Ironman World Championship was exciting to watch and now we are motivated to be our best for next season. Where do we start?

When planning your next season first, take time to reflect on your training and racing that you completed this past season. What worked, what did not, what will help you reach your goals moving forward. Below are 4 tips to reflect on.

1. Review your training peaks logs and think back to the training blocks where things just clicked, the races that went well, and also the and racing that did not go went as planned.  What did you learn?
2. As you reflect note adversity,  what you had to overcome, mental, physical or nutritional, to reach your goals?  Note your mental and physical strength and weaknesses. What areas of your training and racing brings you most joy since joy brings success.   Whatever your weaknesses are you’ll be stronger and more resilient next time if you know what they are and prepare for them to match your strengths.

3. Although it is important to plan ahead, planning for future events makes the training  more purposeful and enjoyable, it is important to note that life can derail your plans and to always have a backup, plan B and C. Anything is possible and that can mean illness, injury, canceled events, and other things out of your control.

4. Don’t obsess too much about the next year’s plan.  Stay in the moment and think about how you can take what you learned from this season as a springboard to future success.
