Finally, my motivation is back 🙂 I’m training and competing with a lighter heart that looks forward to the challenge ahead.
I’m struggling with motivation to train and I cannot really pinpoint a single thing that is driving this lack of motivation for shooting. I barely ever get to train at home and when I go to the range I cut it short and don’t enjoy it as much.
While training in person with coach Philippe Stiel he gave me a lot of useful advice on things like journaling, acceptance, mental fatigue, keeping the pleasure of shooting, visualization… Here are all of them for you to easily put in practice.
Hector Montalvo Angulo is a Spanish level 1 national pistol coach that I met thanks to an invitation to participate in an online competition via WhatsApp during the first COVID lockdown. Among the many things that were shared in that group was this conference he gave at the olympic shooting federation of Valentia (Real Federación Valenciana de Tiro Olímpico). As soon as I started reading it I thought that it had to be published and Hector immediately gave permission.
