Discover how to use one of your best assets - your mind - to greatest effect in your spring marathon
Be realistic. During a rough period, don’t try to go extremely positive, saying things like, “I’m running as fast as a cheetah” or “I feel amazing,” because right then, if you are feeling more like you’re running with two fridges on your back, your brain will reject the positive statement. Instead, pick something that’s believable and focus on that. You could try, “I’m doing well” or “Good job, keep it up.” Those statements are more believable, helpful and positive in a way that your brain can accept.
