Motivation

In competition, relaxation and meditation during the night prior to the competition. In the morning, a few minutes’ relaxation in bed followed by five minutes’ meditation. Bursts of meditation during the day up to the time of the race. Bursts of meditation fitted into the lining up before the start. If rhythm or concentration is lost during the race, (200 m + races especially) use one breath or word (e.g. “in, out”) as a trigger in the water to re-focus.
