People are their habits. Our habits and behaviors represent ingrained pathways in our brain. The more these behaviors & thought patterns are used, the deeper the connections in our brains become. If we want to know what is ingrained in a person, then look to what they do often

To change, whether physical or mental, requires a stress, to bump us off our normal path. The longer we stay in the status quo, the deeper the grooves become. Instead of expending mental & physical energy to knock us out of these well worn paths, we are pushed towards remaining

Athletes coached by servant leaders “display higher intrinsic motivation, are more satisfied with their sport experience, are mentally tougher, & seem to perform better as a team and individually when compared with athletes coached by non-servant leaders"

If you enjoy listening to in-depth and complex explanations of physiology, then I have a treat for you... The Science of Running just got published as an audiobook. 16hrs of complexity for your listening pleasure...

Interesting NEW study on what separates the Kenyans from the rest... Spoiler alert: Over the course of 7 years, they accumulate A LOT more aerobic miles (& less highly anaerobic miles) than their European peers!

Why do smart people continually jump on fads? And why are they so passionate about it, that if any criticism is brought up, it’s as if you stole their firstborn child?

When it comes to performance & innovation, we often fall for 'just so' explanations that paint a picture that has little to do with reality Marginal Gains is one of those What the mess around British Cycling/Team Sky actually teaches us about innovation

Reading helps us understand that people hold different beliefs than our own, and that that is perfectly okay.

Get the basics down before branching out, and revisit them constantly. The basics are our foundation. All other performance and knowledge develops from them. Without a clear understanding of the basics, we have nothing to connect it to.

Eddie Jones 🗣"The problem is players are becoming robotic. They are followers rather than leaders, because they get told what to do all the time. There told where to be, what to eat, what to wear and how to think. Your robbing them of the opportunity to grow as people"

At large are still based on competition. Did you beat teams that qualified or not? As I said no projections.

Agreed. There’s nothing better than lining up and racing to see who is the best in the region and gets to go to nationals! No polls, conjecture, formulas. Just competing against your rivals. But Of course over the last few years, there have been many proposals to get rid of it..

How do we get the most out of ourselves to perform? A few commonalities I've noticed: 1. Know what you are capable of 2. Know what puts you in the right frame of mind. 3. Execute your plan, not someone else’s 4. Know how to flip the switch
