Personal Awareness Questions – These questions will lead you to think about yourself more than you normally do. It may make you uncomfortable to think about these ideas, but they will begin to help you understand the reason you act the way you do, and more importantly begin acting the way you want to. Take the time to get to know yourself so you can focus on what matters most to you. These are John Maxwell’s answers to these questions, what are yours?

Performance Nutrition Tip: Energy System Support
Drinks/bars or tablets that tend to be very high in antioxidants, and B vitamins, as well as fish oils and Vitamin E can support your energy system to keep up with your training and the stress of everyday life. Using these supplements allows your body to produce high levels of energy production during training as well as assist in the recovery after training that needs to occur for you to continue to improve. I use FRS once in the morning before training and once again at lunch. On race day, sometimes a third time if I have expended over 2000 calories that day. GU gels like Hammer Gel works during events or long training sessions. I use Roctane during racing events.
“Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.” Stephen R. Covey
