KZ: My [top] advice is to always remember to have fun and never lose sight of the reason you got into triathlon in the first place. The next advice is to focus on the process. Set big goals, but make sure to write down all the steps you need to do to get to that goal and stay focused on those. Finally I recommend taking your easy days easy and hard days hard. Build in the recovery days and go conversational pace on those. It's fun to train with a group, but some days you might have to do your own thing and stay true to yourself in order to get the most out of the session or the recovery.
