I'm not one for posting "motivational" or "rise and grind" videos, but this one is fairly awesome. If this does not get you fired up about your workouts this week I don't know what will!

Is Social Media Affecting your Athletic Performance and Enjoyment? Growing up, I was a terrible basketball player, but it was my favorite sport. After being cut from the 7th grade team, I got over my embarrassment and disappointment and asked the coach, "Ok, so how can I improve?” In light of my affinity for endurance sports, I think we all know that this did not end in comeback story akin to Michael Jordan being cut from his high school team. I often think back to this time and wonder if my feelings of defeat or failure would have been amplified by social media. Today we post our workouts, nutrition, and athletic performances on an almost daily basis for the world to see. How many times have we done this while training for an event? The aftermath of a disappointing performance then consumes us by worrying what to say to our friends, family, and social media audience. We then write a race report that should be written for us to learn from, but we spend more time wondering what people will think, not how we can improve in our training and race performances. This mentality may be affecting your performance and enjoyment of your sport. In fact, research shows how physiological stress can hinder performance. Take a step back and evaluate how we value our social media status. We often publicly set these high and sometimes unrealistic expectations for ourselves then suffer the “social media” aftermath. One of my athletes offered the following insight: whether you perform your best or your worst, there is a good chance the large majority of your followers and friends, if not all of them, will read it then move on with their lives. They are not dwelling on it nor thinking about it the rest of the day. You may be, but they aren’t. We all fall victim to social media stress and anxiety. Once you realize that this about you and no one else, it very well may improve your performance and enjoyment of training and racing. Think critically, question often, and train smart.
