“Train Like You Fly, Fly Like You Train.” We’ve all heard this well-known slogan, and some of us even claim to live by it. What does it really mean, and how can we apply it to our training?
Fly Like You Train:
When push comes to shove, your training is what you fall back on in the real world. All of the great daydreams you’ve had about how you will deal with a given situation will remain just that – day dreams. When tested under pressure, your body will invariably return to what it knows the best. This simple fact indicates that if we end up in an unexpected low level rope break or even a stall and spin in a thermal, we will react exactly as we have trained. This can be good, or it can be bad. Avoid reinforcing bad habits because whatever you have practiced the most will be how you react when the pressure is turned up.
