While training I always tell myself 'Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.' Squash is a major part of my life. Everything I do revolves around my performance.
If it doesn't challenge you it doesn't change you. Squash helps me stay out of my comfort zone
Ultra-running is not just physical but mental endurance too. To push the mind and body ‘beyond the edge’ is what I train for and do in an ultra marathon.
I am performance oriented, not goal oriented, which is limited to the performance of your competitiors.
