“ The best performers are not consistently great, but they are great at being consistent.”
Fall is an interesting time as most people are wrapping up their seasons, and a select few are either opening up the racing for CX or already “ setting the table” for an early spring campaign.
When I first started coaching I was under the illusion that this was the slow season, but now that’s all been replaced with prep for next year (i.e., NICA team meetings are already happening )and usually a lineup of conferences and professional development. I’d like to see that professional development come back in person, to be honest. Some of the presentations didnt translate that well online ( most did, to be fair) and I missed the opportunity to connect with people in person.
I am excited to be attending a workshop with Dr Amy Saltzman this fall, and I’d like you to sign up as well.
Lets learn to approach stressful situations and competitive environments from a centered and grounded place, and be unshakeable and successful.
Gideon Myles- Portland Oregon. to Portland Maine.- HE DID IT, PEOPLE. The numbers are just astounding, 3887 miles, 162,420 feet of climbing over 43 days with 4 rest days to do laundry and sample local pizza. I had an idea to count up the amount of bars and chews he consumed over the trip, then ran out of fingers and toes. A LOT.
For those who are PMC -savvy- Gideon pushed his CTL to 199 and his TSB dipped as low as -117 as he crossed the Rockies. HUGE KUDOS to successfully finishing what ended up being a two-year project with COVID postponements to last years trip.. WOW!
