What do you do to perk yourself up
We have bad days and good days.
Relish the bad days as you need them as a comparator to know how good the good days are!
As far as I go, I think about if there's anything obvious as to why it was a ' Bad ' run. If I come up with nothing I shrug my shoulders and carry on the next day/run. If I can see a reason then I know why. And then carry on the next day/run.
Can't see any difference between the two approaches? You're right, there isn't any difference.
I have a bad run at least once a fortnight,its inevitable that its gonna happen some time.most important thing is not too get too hung up about it,these things just happen some times for reasons we cant explain.
Focus on the next run is what really counts in my book,then after your next one you will wonder what all the fuss was about
You're bound to have a rough run at the end of a mara training schedule, i once cried my way through a 15 miler, was hell!!
One thing to remember though is that you did it, race day will be different but don't forget you didn't give up, so what if you walked a bit at the end, its a bloody long way.
Give yourself a break and look forward to race day, you'll be rested by then and ready for action.
Best of luck.
