How To Anticipate & Solve Issues on Race Day

By Rory | Open Water & Racing



The 3 Step Plan

1️⃣ Write down any potential challenges that could arise that stress you out, the things that if they happened, may cause you to react in a negative way or cause you to lose your focus.
2️⃣ Write out the tasks or steps you will need to execute on to solve the problem and get moving again quickly
 .      ● The goal is to program your response. You want to script the steps to eliminate the process time that it may take when it happens or possible responses that you may come up with.
3️⃣ For problems you can’t anticipate:
1. Breathe
 .      ● It will keep you calm
2. Clear Your Mind Of Negative Thoughts
 .      ● Remember why you are doing this
3. Stay Task Focused.
 .      ● What’s the MINS or MINT? The Most Important Next Step or Most Important Next Task you can do to solve the problem?
