Tri-Me Tape 106

Updated: Apr 11, 2021



Mindset, motivation and multiple sports, the Tri Me Tapes are the audio journal of an amateur athlete, Abi Dawson.

Seeking a new challenge and an opportunity to improve her mindset Abi made the commitment to try new sports and compete.

Initially, she identified triathlon as a true test of grit, physicality and most importantly mental fortitude.

Join Abi and her partner in crime Matt as they discuss the journey to competition, the highs, the lows and lessons learnt along the way.


In this tape of Tri-MeTapes Podcast, we discuss Abi’s journey with diets, body image, nutrition and overcoming negative self-talk. We establish priorities and what the goal was. Is she doing this to be a top athlete, look better or develop a resilient mindset? Can you have it all?
