FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/0_1UCrBbihc
  • Resource Links:  CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • Today's piece quickly becomes about how well you can control your breathing in the first two movements to allow you to be able to push on the bike at the end of each interval.  Athletes should have around 1:30 of work on the bike each round, give or take 0:30.

The One | Teaching Focus

Mindset 

A short story to share.

Pablo Picasso, the famous Spanish artist, was walking through the market one day when a young woman spotted him and ran over. She asked with great excitement and admiration  for him to draw a picture for her as she handed over a piece of paper.

Pablo smiled, and obliged. He quickly drew a small, but beautiful, piece of art on the tiny piece of paper.

Absolutely stunned by the speed of such quality drawing, she asks – “But, Mr. Picasso, how is that possible? That only took you thirty seconds to draw this masterpiece!” Pablo smiled again, and replied “My good woman, it took me 30 years to draw that masterpiece in thirty seconds.”

As we grow, give ourselves permission to create “junk”. Give ourselves permission to laugh off mistakes, and get better through their lessons learned. We all want to thrive and do well, 100% of the time… but we also all know it can’t be that way. 

Our own judgment can become our worst enemy, so let’s combat that. 

Judge less. And practice more. That’s the secret sauce.
