THE STRESS MANAGEMENT ACCORDING CLAIRE PALOU
« Everyone has their own little techniques to manage stress, it depends on each person. I had a follow-up in mental preparation which brought me concrete tools to overcome stress but especially to use it positively. You need stress to stimulate but you must not be overwhelmed either. »
THE SECRETS OF PERFORMANCE ACCORDING CLAIRE PALOU
« The most important thing for performance in my opinion is the mind. If the mind is not there, there is no point in trying to break records or win races. Above all, you have to have the desire and the motivation to do it. Then of course, training is just as important. But if a person is very well trained but has little determination, he will not be able to do anything. »
The KEY ONE have really become an essential in my sport. They are never far from my spikes, especially in competition. It’s one less stressful thing to know that you don’t have to take off your spikes right before the start of the race to quickly go to the bathroom !
