Threshold power is the maximum effort you can hold for 60 minutes without blowing up.

For cyclists and runners, this is a very important part of your training.

Start with connecting to your “why”… Why am I doing this?

We are much more tolerant to discomfort when it’s tied to A definite purpose or long-term goal.

Be specific, with a strong why, you’ll figure it out anyhow.

Number 2 ..Find a way, not an excuse. Use the power of self-talk to keep up your positivity and optimism through your workout. Use the “I am” and You are self-talk to keep you in the training session.

Train purposefully in unpleasant conditions…Riding or running at a time of day you’re not used to trains your mind and body to work through the discomfort

You must practice daily.  Set a schedule, and make it a goal to meet that schedule as much as possible.  It’ll help you to tolerate an uncomfortable moment and let you learn the connection between an unpleasant training experience and the games your mind plays to quickly escape and avoid.
