Tracey Stanard, a Sports Psychology Consultant, joins us from New Jersey today. She consults with athletes on their mental ‘game’ through her business Aspire Performance.
She was a youth gymnast with intense training schedules before going to college and taking up cycling.
We talk today about How a masters athlete or recreational athlete can use ‘mental skills’ or sports psych in their own world. Is it just for elites and Olympians? Or sick people? the power of believing you can do something, confidence, coach-athlete relationships, retirement, re-focus after a setback.
We also go into the power of believing you can do something, confidence, coach-athlete relationships, retirement, re-focus after a setback.
Of course, we are concerned about the infamous ‘Post-Ironman burnout’ and how that relates to struggling with retirements. Race-day nerves and how to set better goals and resolutions.
Tracey’s specialty is in the social aspects of the sport, the coach-athlete, athlete-athlete, manager to athlete etc.
Sports scientist Steven Seiler joins us today to talk about Polarized Training, or intensity distribution, as well as a related concept he came up around the ‘Hierarchy of Endurance Training Needs’.
We cover some really interesting and practical information that you can take to your own training patterns today. Regardless of your training the idea that we should have focus and a purpose to our intensity and volume should resonate.
