Just so you do not get distracted with wondering what I know about sports. Know now that back in school (both primary and secondary) I was an athlete. I raced, played both football and handball and did the jumps too. Yes! I also represented my school a couple of times.
Meanwhile, I remember just how much we believed in glucose. Especially for skinny, frail me who would run and faint after long-distance races and they would give me glucose to revive me. Hehehe! Those good old days of glucose and inter-house sports were epic. So now that we have cleared that air, let your attention come home to today’s podcast.
99.9% of the time, looking back in a race isn’t the smartest of ideas. You are wondering why? Generally - in the mind of an athlete, it signals a negative mindset shift.

You will be amazed at what the singular act of briefly checking does to you.
