This past week I’ve been thinking more about finding and holding onto a love for my sport. This has meant, among other things, diversifying my training, and it’s for that reason that I’m a little bit obsessed with Ironman Jesse Thomas.
To be completely honest, I only discovered Jesse through his wife Lauren Fleshman, my ultimate Girl Crush. But the more I learn about triathlon as a sport, the more impressed I became. Training for three disciplines instead of just one must take a great deal of commitment and sacrifice, and I can’t even imagine doing it for the Ironman distance. But as Jesse states in this video, it’s those athletes who have internal, inherent motivation that are bound to succeed. If you don’t have the motivation, no-one else is going to give it to you!
Who’s been motivating you this week? Would you ever take part in a triathlon?
Lots of love,
