Boise father, husband, businessman, and triathlete, Gary Martinez. Thoughts on coaching.
- A funeral service will be held at Sacred Heart Church in Boise, at 4pm this Thursday, May 13th.
- The service will be live-streamed. Email me if you would like details.
- You can read the obituary for Gary here.
- Please see the gofundme page to support Gary's family.
- In case you missed last week's newsletter.
- An excellent resource to better understand the risk of a cardiac event during a triathlon. Thank you Kris Stilton for sharing this with me.
- The word "coach" originally came from kocsi, Hungarian for "carriage", after a city in which a popular carriage design was developed and manufactured in the 15th century. It's worth noting that kocsi does not mean "friend" or even "mentor" or "teacher". A "carriage" is designed to smooth the bumps on a rough road, to take some of the weight off your back, to be reliable, and to be an important partner on a shared journey.
- Interesting study on the difference between world-leading coaches and world-class coaches. The main difference being that world-leading coaches were significantly more agreeable, had greater perception of emotion, were better at managing their own emotion, and were less narcissistic than their less successful counterparts.
- A couple of my favorite books on coaching and building technique/skill:
- The Little Book of Talent, by Daniel Coyle. You can read my book notes here.
- The Inner Game of Tennis, by Timothy Gallwey. Book notes here.
