Mental Fortitude

by jbtracyiv » Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:34 am

From my lurking around the board I see many discussions on physically training and coaching athletes but little about developing mental toughness.

I'm wondering if any coaches have any experience with coaxing an athlete out of their comfort zone? This particular athlete (female if that makes a difference) is already good (consistent top 5-10 finisher at most state levels) and has the right attitude about training/workouts (consistent hard worker), but when it comes to racing will not go to the well for a victory, or at least to make her competitors have to earn the win.

Suggestions from coaches?
