We asked elite triathlete Lucy Charles for her essential mental preparation tips. In this one she focusses on how you can best prepare mentally for race day.

– Everyone gets nervous on race day – it just means you want to capitalise on all the hard work that you’ve put into your training
– Make a checklist so that you don’t forget important equipment – it’s one less thing to have to think about
– Reflect on tough training sessions you’ve had and think about how they’ll help you in the race
– Post-race, reflect on the journey you’ve been on to get to this point and give yourself a pat on the back

Check back every day for more videos from Lucy to improve your swimming, running, cycling and mental approach to sport and fitness.
