Train Like a Warrior
The single most important factor in your success will be your mindset. How you think and act every day will determine your results. The Warrior mindset is to engage yourself fully into the pursuit at hand. Some call it the “Personal Legend”, the thing you have always wanted to do. We revere our warriors in our culture because we understand the courage it takes to make the ultimate sacrifice for what we believe in. The warrior trains and prepares for battle knowing he may have to give his life, and with intense focus and mindfulness is readied for the trial. Will you bring ALL of you to the living of your life? Don’t hold back, go all in on your personal legend every day, develop the skills you need, hone them with practice. When the time comes for you to face your challenges you are prepared and confident you can prevail. Your ability to shape your way of thinking is your greatest human asset (mindset), take time to get crystal clear on your goals and purpose, train like your life depends on it, bring every bit of yourself to the fight, Train Like a Warrior. It Matters, Make it Count!

Polar Smart Coaching Training Tip: What information should I track with my Polar technology?
Polar HR Technology helps you better understand how your body is responding to your training plan. The Four main criteria to look at during training are:
1. Calories burned: This is a direct measure of your energy system capacity. As the calories burned increases it represents a more robust energy system. Determine how many cals/min for reference over time.
2. Average Heart Rate: This is a measure of your sustained cardiovascular output. Your ability to deliver blood to the muscle will dictate your aerobic and anaerobic power during exercise.
3. Max Heart Rate: This is a measure of your high end power during training and to be sure you are training at a safe and effective intensity level. Your predicted HR is determined by age and then refined over time by observing Max HR during training.
4. Duration of Training: How long you train is called training volume. How many calories you can burn in a given time reveals if you are getting stronger and more efficient over time.
Polar has Smart Coaching Features built into their newest offerings giving you great insight into the training effect of your current training plan including Running Index, Fitness Test, Training Load and more.

Food Rules Tip: 25 Eat Your Colors
The idea that a healthy plate of food will feature several different colors is a good example of an old wives’ tale about food that turns out to be good science too. The colors of many vegetables reflect the different antioxidant phytochemicals they contain—anthocyanins, polyphenols, flavonoids, carotenoids. Many of these chemicals help protect against chronic diseases, but each in a slightly different way, so the best protection comes from a diet containing as many different phytochemicals as possible.
