Welcome to my show! I’m Shangrila Rendon, 2x Guinness World Record Holder, best-selling author, professional endurance athlete, triathlon coach & motivational speaker (https://www.shangrilarendon.com/). I was abused as a kid and sexually assaulted as an adult. At 24 years old, I was diagnosed with extreme depression, PTSD, and struggled with eating disorder and alcohol addiction. In sports, I didn’t know how to swim, was afraid of open water, didn’t own a bike and started running only 15 minutes on a treadmill. I was a non-runner, non-cyclist, and non-swimmer at 24 yet I became an inspirational athlete regardless. I trained very hard and aimed for excellence. I coach athletes to achieve their dreams. My goal is to share with you my journey in triathlon and endurance racing that is full of tough lessons learned, mindset, race, training and nutrition strategies, and secrets to success. The goal of this show is to introduce you to the people and ideas that will help you execute your dreams. You will level up your skills, attain joy with your triathlon & endurance goals and live up to your full potential. Every Tuesday, I drop a weekly dose of inspiration on alternating topics: - Interviews with inspirational athletes, who will inspire and motivate you in achieving your goals and dreams. We will talk about their journey, achievements and experiences as well as key strategies, habits and lessons they learned you too can incorporate in your training, racing and life in general. - Interview with health, nutrition, mindset and triathlon endurance experts where they will share findings and key information from their expertise and experience. Various topics from ambitions, time management, sleep, family, drugs, ego, failure and so much more. No topic is off-limits. Subscribe to this channel if you want to keep up to date with our content!

In this episode, Coach Shangrila talks with Alex to talk about how to regain motivation, keep momentum going despite challenges & build confidence in yourself.
- How to fit in workouts when you only have 1 hour training availability & very busy schedule (e.g. single dad w/ 1 year old boy & full time job)
- How to get started training after 7 year of no racing, when you have self doubt, are unmotivated and have gained weight
- How to keep your self-belief strong and trust that you will be able to cross the finish line knowing you are coming from zero training, cramping, hurting during training and don’t have enough time to train (only 10 weeks left).
- What to do to mentally stay on track and solve issues when things are going wrong on race week (altitude swim anxiety, sore knee, inflamed achilles)
