Golden Gate Triathlon Club HIT to Wildflower Long Course

  1. 1. GGTC HIT PROGRAM 2014 Wildflower Long Course © 2010 VMware Inc. All rights reserved
  2. 2. CORE VALUES v  Dedication (commit to regular training and commit to training on your own and with your teammates) v  Determination (accept and work through the difficulties and challenges of training and competing) v  Generosity (train and compete with joy and acceptance of oneself and others) v  Growth (learn about yourself as a triathlete, be resilient, find the joy of developing as a triathlete and a teammate, accept that developing as a triathlete is a process that takes time)
  3. 3. DREAMS v  Aspire to become better every day as a team and as individuals What an athlete cannot dream he cannot envisage. Without a vision of himself [herself] at another place in time the athlete can never reach his [her] potential. — Tony Benson and Irv Ray, Run With The Best
  4. 4. REACHING OUR LIMITS v  Most athletes think they have reached their limits when they are no more than 70% exhausted. — Herb Elliott, Australian miler, gold medalist 1960 Olympics
  5. 5. PUSHING EACH OTHER v  Dedication Patience with one’s self, support crew and teammates is necessary. The body’s adaptations to progressive training loads take time. Becoming discouraged needs to be recognized and addressed, and your support crew, coaches and teammates need to help and remind each other that improvement takes time.
  6. 6. PUSHING EACH OTHER (2) v  Determination Determined triathletes push themselves beyond their comfort zone over weeks, months, and years of training. Over time their ability to handle the discomfort becomes second nature and their improvement line goes up, sometimes dramatically.
  7. 7. GROWTH v  Growth Assume a “growth mindset.” People with this mindset believe that “I can get better with practice” or a focused effort, and this mindset “creates a … a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”* (For triathletes, I want them to find a love of triathlon, reading about triathlon, following the sport.) According to Stanford professor *Carol Dweck in her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. People with this mindset are better equipped to handle setbacks and know that goals are attainable through hard work.
  9. 9. COMMITMENT v  Belief in one’s self, support crew, teammates, and coaches is critical to making the long-term commitment to succeed and grow.
