Why don't motivational videos work

10 motivational videos for triathletes - triathlon is so great

You probably know that too: when the alarm goes off in the morning, the bed is sometimes just too comfortable. The weather outside is gross and cold and because it's the weekend there is really no reason to go straight to the sport.

In moments like this you have probably already postponed a training session.

It is not uncommon for us to postpone such a unit all day and, if things go very badly, it fails in the end.

On some days it is difficult for us triathletes to be 100% disciplined.

And honestly, days like that are okay too.

It can't go super well and be easy to go to workout every day.

But sometimes it still has to be.

We always have a few motivational videos saved for days like this.

You can take a leisurely look at it, but you get a good helping of motivation.

After two videos at the latest, it will look different with your own training.

And so that you don't have to do without this boost of motivation in your everyday training, I have put together 10 really good motivational videos for triathletes.
