Here’s how we slew the triathlon dragon – adapt a beginner’s mindset…

Crash!

 

Fell off my bike for the third time – this is hopeless!

I can still feel the bruise

 

It was the night before my first triathlon

 

I had put pedal clips on my bike to cycle faster for the event

 

Only problem was I didn’t know how to clip my feet in

 

Instead of allowing my frustration to take over

 

I got back on the saddle and made sure the last practice clip in was a good one

 

I wouldn’t have managed it without the support of my friend Colin

Who joined me for the event in the Ardennes

 

He was a like a parent running alongside their kid as they learn to cycle for the first time

 

You see there is something refreshing about approaching something with a beginner’s mindset

 

Accepting that we don’t know everything and trusting in learning through others.
