First, set goals.
Goals are motivation. Without them, there is no direction. Have different levels of goals to stay motivated throughout the season. It’s also important to have one following a major goal; athletes will fail to realize this and may fall into post-goal depression.
Second, identify strengths and weaknesses.
This is what sets an athlete apart from their competitors. Formulating a plan is essential for sucesss. In many cases, the discipline one practices least is the weakest. This should be a focus for making a weakness into a strength.
Finally, have a competitive advantage.
The details can prove an advantage because so many athletes have trained just as hard for race day. Coach Michellie has knowledge specific to set goals that prevent athletes from making mistakes or bad decisions to remain competitive.
