Professional triathletes are dedicated to the sport. They go through long and gruelling training sessions. Not to mention the time they spend travelling to events and competing.
At races or talks, they often get asked: “What do you do when you get a little time off?”
For Magali Tisseyre, key words are “fun” and “nap”. She likes to zone out so she can put all her energy into training.
As for Eric, he usually likes to keep his mind busy between trainings.

As Magali explains, it’s important to be good to yourself and disconnect so you can come back stronger.
It's easy to think that performing better just means working harder. But the power of a happy mind should not be overlooked!
