My name is Luca and I am an ultra-distance runner.
I enjoy taking on big feats such as 12 hours and 24 hours running events and other unusual challenges mainly because of their mental component.
I have signed up for this course as I’ve recently started coaching, and the focus of my coaching is to improve the confidence, self-belief and other mental skills. Over and above the physical training.
I do not have experience in psychology or sports psychology. I am interested in the topic so I keep myself abreast with mainstream books on the topic.
I am hoping to develop skills and learn the basis of sports psychology to help me as an athlete, coach and to instil further interest to continue to study the subject in a more formal way.
thank you for the opportunity
