The best piece of coaching advice

Brianne is one of the leading world heptathletes.

What has resonated with me is it is better to get to the line 80% in shape but 100% healthy rather than 100% in shape and 80% healthy. It always used to scare me to think I could go into an event in only 80% shape. Yet from experience it is so much harder to compete at your best when you have a nagging injury. As long as you are 100% healthy, a combination of the adrenaline and competition can compensate for your lack of fitness and you can achieve some amazing things.
