Talent, structure and substantial legwork are all fine if you want to be a good triathlete, but it's not what is most important. The key to success and good results is the process itself, an everyday life that works in the long run and the mindset that you have. The inner motivation, the joy and the excitement about what you are doing is what should be the driving force. If it had been about physiology, talent and structure alone I would never have come as far as I have today.

So where do you get it from and how do you build up a mental strength so robust that it won't collapse when it hurts, and when you bump into adversity or defeat? How do you maintain the belief in yourself and the belief in the project no matter what? It will get tough, that's how it is with triathlon. You will

feel the pressure on time, strength, energy, pain threshold and comfort zone - no matter what level you are at. It's not without good reason that it's called an extreme sport.
