We posed the following question to readers on the Inside Triathlon facebook page, “What’s the best training advice you’ve received?” Here are a few responses to help you feel motivated and inspired.

• Don’t wait until you think you are perfectly trained. Sign up, show up and have fun.

• Train smarter, race harder.

• Never out ride your run.

• Smooth is fast….fast is smooth!

• If you feel you are in control, you are not going fast enough.

• No one ever wins the race in the water. Relax and swim YOUR race!

• The water is meant to slow you down. Just relax and think of the water as an incredible masseuse.

• After I withdrew due to injury: It’s just one race.

• For the 140.6 distance: Don’t get caught up in the moment. Keep moving forward and smile. The day is long. Be patient.

• Work on form, speed will follow.

• The better you recover the more you gain!

• First you learn to train, then you learn to race, eventually with time and effort, you’ll learn to win!

• Follow a plan and invest your time to learn from others!

• Rest is your friend

• A healthy athlete beats an injured athlete anytime!

• When you feel like quitting… dig deeper.

• Get a coach! It isn’t too expensive and is worth every penny!

• Sleep is NOT over-rated
