“One of the best lessons you can learn in life is to master how to remain calm”~ Catherine Pulsifer
🌬MOTIVATION MONDAY-MASTERY OF REMAINING CALM 👊
The mastery of remaining calm comes from changing the way the mind thinks. To exercise patience and positive thoughts instead of freaking out or panicking. One way I have learned to remain calm is to remind myself of something very stressful or uncomfortable from the past and comparing it to the current situation. Living through extreme or ridiculous situations help to keep everything in perspective, and help to master to remain calm and collected.
The Six Gap Century Ride, Florida State Road Race, and Pittsburgh’s Dirty Dozen Bike Ride are coming up this fall! Each one of these events has demands with hills and tough climbs and I have engineered training plans designed specifically to prepare for each event. Each plan is also geared to improve your FTP, hill climbing efficiency, and all-around strength and ability. Through the training and coaching you will also build a mental toughness and tenacity to help to learn the art winning. Start training today and click below to learn more about these value packed training plans!
Perezluha Coaching has its first National Champion! That’s right, on June 16th Jeanine Seeger found the champion within, winning the Women’s 40-44 National Road Race on the Fort Gordon Military Base near Augusta, GA. This win came after a lot of adversity with the contemplation of not even doing the road race at all. I’m glad I was able to help Jeanine accomplish this goal!
