Mental toughness.....


I am determined that mental toughness is key to staying focused on the big goal. There are days....much like today (rainy and cold)....that skipping out on the scheduled work-outs would be so easy to do, but instead I keep going. I'm going to follow through with this and have the best Ironman that I can possibly have......or die trying : )
I am also convinced that ones level of mental toughness defines who they are and where they are going.

absolutely! on days like this, i'm sorta "glad" i've got the double whammy of an injury + cold. what was on your sched for today? and can you switch days around? (like do tomorrow's swim today since it was rainy out?)

I'm not sure if it was mental toughness that got me out riding yesterday, or sheer force of habit.


I do know I didn't have the mental toughness to ride hard and fast on wet, dark roads though.

I can switch days around, but I don't like to do it too often as swimming back to back days can sometimes be a little much on the arms and shoulders. Got my 4.5 hour ride for Sunday out of the way today!!!!! yipee!
