Sports Psychology and Mental Toughness

(The article below is taken from this page. See info about the author at the bottom.)

What does it take for you to reach your potential as an athlete? The true challenge in triathlon, marathon, cycling and open water swimming is the competition between you and the course, you and the clock, but primarily between you and your mind. Success in these endurance sports is all about your mental ability to handle the pain and fatigue of oxygen debt, about your ability to master the limits that you think you have. The endurance sport athlete’s most formidable opponent can be found in the mirror. You are both the problem and the solution!

Are you mentally tough as an athlete? Is sports psychology an active part of your training or simply an after-thought? Do you know how to consistently harness the power of your mind to lift the level of your performance? Or are you your own worst enemy out there? Are you the kind of athlete who beats him/herself well before the race’s finish?
