If you've just signed up for a triathlon, or are thinking you want to do one (high five!), the training you're about to experience might be both challenging and empowering.
You might also begin to notice how much you change physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Before you get started, though, it's important to sit down and put together a training schedule, and an overall goal you wish to set.
Throughout your training, you may notice on some days your motivation running thin. You shouldn't beat yourself up about it, but you also shouldn't let your mind rule your attitude.
Some days, even though you may want to push your limits when you're feeling tired or sore, it's crucial to listen if your body is telling you to slow down.
