Always Competing

Competing in triathlons is fun, but what or how do you keep that competitive spirit when you are training. One way is on the day that you are to go hard do just that, and to make it special, find others out on the road and catch them. If you see someone 100, 200, 1/2 mile ahead of you, go for it. Can you catch them, can you pass them, can you sustain that level for you full ride or run. If you are ridding with a group then play rabbit, each one leaves at 2-3 min intervals, the leader of course tries to hold of the group and the rest (tri's) to catch, pass the rest.
These types of workouts help that competitive spirit and also help improve/surpass level periods in training.
