Episode 96: My Mental Performance Crisis Call with David Niethe
26:48This is a very different episode to what I normally put out, but I think there will be immense value in this for a lot of you guys. If you guys follow me on social media you will know that I have gotten into endurance running and am currently training for an ultra marathon. This past weekend I had possibly one of the toughest training sessions I’ve ever had, not physically but mentally. The volume of my training schedule combined with running my Businesses and general life is really starting to show me just how brutal this training can be. I basically walked in the door in not a very good frame of mind, I got the training session done but I just did not feel great about it afterwards. So I called the person who I would deem as one of the best mental performance coaches in the southern hemisphere, David Niethe. You guys would be familiar with him as I have had him on the podcast before. Niethey basically dropped everything he was doing and got me in for a session so we could go over what happened, reflect on it and learn from it and he also allowed me to film it. I understand you go through high’s and low’s with training but this is a cool example of why it is important to have someone like Dave in your corner to help you handle situations like this.This is a bit different from our normal podcast content, but I think a lot of you guys will get a lot of value from this.
