Making Shift Happen

84. Stop Belittling Your Efforts

Aug 22, 2022 | Podcast, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Jen is wearing a teal and grey Specialized jersey and black bib shorts as she rides her gravel bike, overlooking the green tree-covered mountains in Steamboat, Colorado in the SBT GRVL race.

Belittling: means to put down or to make another person feel as though they aren’t important or didn’t do something noteworthy.

Your effort is your effort alone.

Just because you may have ridden less mileage, less elevation, or maybe even less technical terrain or “easier” trails, doesn’t mean that you did any “less” than someone else.

You rode what you rode.

You rode YOUR ride.

In this episode, I share four things you can do when you find yourself belittling your efforts.

Here are some other episodes on mindset that are worth listening to:

Do you want to learn more about my #ShredStrong program?

#ShredStrong is my signature year-round strength and conditioning program specifically for mountain bikers. It includes 3 strength workouts and an intervals session per week that easily fit into biking season, plus a mobility plan to help you relax and stabilize those biking muscles of yours. You also get coaching feedback and guidance from me on your movement that you record and send me via video.

All of this is only $49 a month, or $39 a month if you pay for six month in-full (totaling $234). We just started our newest cycle on June 13th, but you can join my email list here to get the latest news on future cycles of the program that start every 3 months (I only email an average of 1-2 times a month).
