Now into this episode. You may have heard that Spartan has made a few rule changes. I decided to go through the entire rule book and made a few comments on some new rules and maybe a few old ones you might not have heard before.
In the Inside Mike's Mind Segment, I give my top 3 ways to help remotivate yourself when you feel like you have lost the urge to train. In my research review I share an interesting study on how eating or not eating breakfast may effect your strength performance, plus some key takeaways for you.
Finally in my Coach's Corner, I have on Spartan Pro Heather Gollnick. Heather is a 5 time Ironman Champion turn elite OCR athlete. Healther shares some of the differences in her trainer from her triathlon days to now, how she keeps in prime shape after years of highly competive training. She shares what her program looks like in season versus off season, plus how she tapers for an upcoming race.
Heather also discusses a few key concepts from her book Triathlete EQ. The gems from this book are great for any sport to help deal with the emotional stresses in your life that might effect performance. All this and much more.
