Yesterday Sarah Storey, winner of 11 gold Paralympic medals, will attempt to break the Hour Record by cycling as far as she can round London's Olympic Velodrome. 
Sarah tweeted “Thank you to everyone who's made it possible for my Hour Attempt to be live streamed across the globe. Shouting at your screen will help me!”

We might be unlikely to ever experience the feeling of the world cheering us on. However, using psychology you can recreate that feeling to enhance your performance.

Try one of these tips.

1. Think of the person who would be least surprised to see you excelling in your fitness endeavours (an old teacher, a friend or an exercise buddy). The person who gives you their vote of confidence and celebrates your successes never having doubted you. When you hit a rough patch imagine the words of advice and support they would offer. Transfer the belief they have you to your faith in yourself.

2. Choose a role model. They don’t need to be an elite athlete as long as you identify with them and admire their achievements. Analyse their approach to difficult circumstances and how they push themselves to keep going. Memorise helpful quotes from them. For example “Just give it all you’ve got and you can’t regret anything.” Jo Pavey, multi-medallist and mother of two, on her 10,000m win at the European Athletics Championships in 2014.

Fabulous midwife, Jenny Patterson, and I will be running our next 5-day Relax and Breathe Birthing Instructors Training course in Edinburgh on: 19th to 23rd March... anyone is welcome and no prior birth education experience is necessary.

The course is accredited by the Federation of Antenatal Educators and insured by Holistic Insurance Services. 

Existing hypnobirthing practitioners get a half price place on the Relax and Breathe Birthing Instructors Training and midwives/birth educators are welcome to do the fast track option (just attending the hypnobirthing 2 day module). 

Our course is fully flexible and modular so it is brilliant for anyone working with pregnant women as a way to make hypnobirthing more accessible in pregnancy. After training you will be able to offer relaxation sessions, add in hypnobirthing scripts to your existing work, run tailored day workshops and full 4-week birth education/hypnobirthing courses for women and partners. 

This a truly joyful way to earn a living ... please do share the news of our next course. We'd really appreciate help in getting the word out smile emoticon 

Oh yes - and we are looking to bring our course to other locations in this year. If anyone is keen to host a course in your area in return for a free place on the course (we just need a room that would fit around 8 folk) then please do email us at: info@relaxandbreathe.me

Thanks so much
Onie
