Goals or Limits? – Episode 76

Have you ever gotten so close to some crazy big goals and suddenly realized you’re capable of more than you ever dreamed possible?  Today we discuss how your BIG goals could actually begin to be a limiting factor in your progress as an athlete. We also dive into the mental health aspect of training and discuss some fine lines between training as a healthy outlet vs an avoidance tactic.  

We would LOVE to hear from you. Suggestions? Feedback? Stories? We want it all. Shoot us an email at EMPOWEREDBYIRON@GMAIL.COM and we might just share your story on our next episode.
